Overview, Cast and Creatives
At what point does natural physical affection between parent and child become something more sinister? And if an adult suddenly 'remembers' that a loved parent abused them years earlier, can the memory be trusted?
Arnold Wesker's provocative drama exploring false memory syndrome was first seen at the Bristol Old Vic in 2000 and now gets it's London premiere directed by King's Head Theatre artistic director Adam Spreadbury-Maher.
This promises to be a taut and unsettling production about the dangerous recesses of the human mind and the devastating effect of a daughter's 'recovered memories' on an apparently happy family.
Arnold Wesker is the author of 42 plays including The Kitchen and Chicken Soup with Barley. This production of Denial is part of a season to celebrate Wesker's 80th birthday which will also include the opera Caritas and The Wesker Trilogy.
