As part of New Adventures’ 25th anniversary celebrations, Britain’s favourite choreographer presents a revival of his modern classic Play Without Words at Sadler’s wells Theatre.

Play Without Words at Sadler's Wells TheatreChelsea, 1965. Behind the privileged façade of domestic social order lies a struggle for power, territory and sexual domination. In a suave Chelsea home an urbane master and his beautiful fiancée welcome their new manservant, Prentice. What follows will change their lives forever. Sexy, chic and thrillingly original, this dance drama is a spellbinding carnival of seduction, intrigue and power.

Returning for its first revival as part of New Adventures’ 25th anniversary celebration, Matthew Bourne’s Play Without Words was a critical and popular success when it was first produced by the National Theatre in 2002. It now makes its debut at Sadler’s Wells in a strictly limited four week season. Designer Lez Brotherston and lighting designer Paule Constable repeat their Olivier-nominated work and Terry Davies’ acclaimed jazz influenced score will be played live at all performances.

Play Without Words won the 2003 Olivier Awards for Best Entertainment and Best Theatre Choreographer.
