A razor sharp black comedy from Sally Rogers

The Still Room is a razor-sharp dark comedy about dreaming big – examining class, attitudes towards sex and the concept of virginity in the 1980s, through the concealed moments in the room where the waiters wait.

This is the debut play from Sally Rogers (Cold Feet, PressThe Bill) , one of the most distinctive voices in the UK.

The Still Room is booking from 1 June – 25 June 2022 at the Park Theatre, London.

What is The Still Room about?

It is 1981, Charles is about to marry Diana. It’s a day off work – but not for everyone. Set in Manchester, the waiting staff are preparing for the “Miss North West” competition that might revive the fortunes of both the staff and the small, tired hotel. School leaver Janice is working as a banqueting waitress whilst waiting for her O Level results. If she gets less than four, her father says she has to move out.

Janice is desperate to leave her hometown and is struggling to see how that can happen – but then, a new waitress arrives. She is different to the other waiting staff and her sexual confidence and bold ideas challenge Janice’s own perceptions of the world. 

Who’s in the cast of The Still Room?

Rising star Kate James leads the cast as Janice, alongside Chris Simmons (The Bill, Hollyoaks, All Or Nothing) as Kevin, Jane Slavin (Clocking Off, Moving On) as Bernice, Zoe Brough (The Nether, Harry Potter & The Cursed Child) as Diane, Larner Wallace-Taylor (How Love Is Spelt, An Inspector Calls) as Karen and Jack Colgrave Hirst (Romeo & Juliet, The Winter’s Tale – The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company) as Dean.
