Rehearsals are underway for the forthcoming new play at the Menier Chocolate Factory – The Sex Party.
The new comedy is by Terry Johnson (Dead Funny) who also directs, and will run at the Menier Chocolate Factory from 4 November 2022 to 7 January 2023.
The Sex Party stars Oscar winner Timothy Hutton making his UK theatre debut in the role of Jeff, alongside Amanda Donohoe (LA Law, Liar Liar, Castaway) as Magdalena. Other cast include Jason Merrells (Agatha Raisin) as Alex, Molly Osborne (Call the Midwife) as Hetty, plus Lisa Dwan (Top Boy), John Hopkins (Poldark), Pooya Mohseni (Law & Order:Special Victims Unit), Kelly Price (The English Game) and Will Barton (Theresa vs. Boris: How May Became PM).
The Sex Party sees four couples gather in a suburban London home for an evening of wine, cheese, and more intimate pleasures. Some are curious, some are more familiar, and one is rather unexpected!
The Menier recently announced its new Autumn 2022 / Winter 2023 season, including Alex Edelman: Just For Us, and the UK premiere of Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison.
