Monogamy on tour

Torben Betts’ new play Monogamy will embark on a short tour ahead of its five-week run at London’s Park Theatre.
The play will star Janie Dee as Caroline Mortimer, the nation’s favourite TV chef. Caroline has it all: a sparkling career, a big house in Highgate, a (golf) loving husband, smart kids and the best kitchen money can buy.
But beneath the immaculate furnishings and studio lighting and away from the glare of the ever-present cameras, Caroline must face the looming collision of living a private life in the public eye. What happens when the cameras turn off and the truth comes out?
Janie Dee is currently starring in the National Theatre’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies. Her other West End credits include Carousel (National Theatre), Comic Potential (Lyric Shaftesbury), Mack & Mabel (Criterion Theatre), My One and Only (Piccadilly Theatre), Betrayal (Duchess Theatre) and Noises Off (The Old Vic).
Monogamy will run at the Festival Theatre in Malvern from May 2-5, Yvonne Arnaud in Guildford from May 8-12 and York Theatre Royal from May 22-26. It will then transfer to London for its five-week run from June 6 to July 7.
