What is Indecent Proposal – A Musical about?

Everyone has their price, Jonny. I think a million dollars is yours.”

Atlantic City. 1988. Jonny and Rebecca are very much in love and very much in debt. He’s a struggling singer-songwriter who spends most of his time playing backup for Annie at the Oasis Casino Hotel Resort, and she works part-time at the casino and for a local charity. They struggle to make ends meet but they’re happy and that’s enough.

Or is it?

When wealthy stranger Larry Harris arrives in town and offers Rebecca a million dollars to spend a night with him, will the lure of money outweigh the promise of fidelity? Will Rebecca accept Larry’s indecent proposal? Will her marriage survive if she doesn’t? Will Jonny stick around if she does?

Who is in the Indecent Proposal cast?

The cast features Ako Mitchell as Larry, Jacqui Dankworth as Annie and Norman Bowman as Jonny.

Indecent Proposal has book and lyrics by Michael Conley, music by Dylan Schlosberg and is directed by Charlotte Westenra.

New musical ‘Indecent Proposal’ to premiere at Southwark Playhouse
A new musical stage adaptation of Jack Engelhard's novel Indecent Proposal will premiere at Southwark Playhouse in May 2020. Described as a chamber musical with a dynamic and fast-paced narrative, the piece is reimagined through the lens of the current social and political climate whilst staying true to the book's setting of Atlantic City in the 1980s. The story centres on Jonny and Rebecca, a deliriously happy couple but who are mired in debt. When a stranger offers a million dollars if he can spend the night with Rebecca will they take the offer and how will they grapple with the fallout from this stranger’s proposition. The piece was famously made into a film starring Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson and Robert Redford in the early 90s. The cast features Norman Bowman (42nd Street, Eugenius!) and Jacqui Dankworth (Into the Woods, Les Liaisons Dangereuses) in the roles of Jonny and his good friend Annie. The roles of Rebecca and billionaire Larry are yet to be announced. Indecent Proposal has book and lyrics by Michael Conley, music by Dylan Schlosberg and will be directed by Charlotte Westenra. Speaking of the piece and its exploration of power, fidelity, gender politics and a woman’s sexual autonomy, Charlotte Westenra says, ‘I am so excited to share this beautiful, important story that is of its time but also painfully relevant today. Like in the show, people with influence still use it to take more than we’re sometimes willing to give. The fact that it happens all the time doesn’t make it right, even if you agree to give it. We can’t wait for audiences to come and contribute to the conversation and ask themselves what they would do if they were to receive an indecent proposal’. Indecent Proposal runs from 29 May 2020 until 27 June 2020 at Southwark Playhouse, London.
