Splendour by Abi Morgan

Kat Rogers plays Micheleine in the upcoming Splendour by Abi Morgan.

The Maltings Arts Theatre

St Albans, Hertfordshire

Long established as a hugely successful playwright, Abi Morgan has gained a wider following through authoring scripts for a number of popular films and TV shows including The Iron Lady, The Hour, Birdsong and River. In this tense and riveting early work, Morgan highlights the fragility of power as a group of women gather in a presidential palace with revolution brewing outside. Starring a quartet of Hertfordshire’s finest actresses, the production is directed by OVO regular Janet Podd, who directed Playhouse Creatures, another all female play, to great acclaim in 2015.
