Menier Chocolate Factory announces winter season

The Menier Chocolate Factory has announced its upcoming winter season. The theatre will stage productions of Assassins by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman as well as Buyer And Cellar by Jonathan Tolins starring Michael Urie. Completing the season is An Evening With Joan Plowright.

Running between Friday 21st November and Saturday 7th March, Assassins will be directed by Jamie Lloyd (pictured right). Full casting and creative team are to be announced.

'The American Dream goes sour in this sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing examination of the people throughout history who have tried – and sometimes succeeded – in assassinating the President of the United States.'

Buyer And Cellar will run between Wednesday 11th March and Saturday 2nd May, marking the comedy's UK premiere. The show was a hit in New York and is currently touring the US. 

'Michael Urie plays an out-of-work actor working in Barbra Streisand’s personal shopping mall in the basement of her California home.'

An Evening With Joan Plowright will be staged for one night only on Sunday 14th September 2014 at 7pm. 

'In a rare stage appearance, Dame Joan discusses with director Richard Digby Day her wide- ranging career lasting over sixty years. She talks of her early days, her work at the Royal Court, her rise to stardom in London and on Broadway and the establishment of the National Theatre under her husband Laurence Olivier.'
