The Argument showing at Theatre Royal Bath, written by William Boyd!

The multi-award winning novelist and screenwriter has written directly for stage for the second time, described as ‘Boyd at his best’. After a simple argument between married copy Meredith and Pip, their relationship continues to unravel until their marriage is at breaking point. Darkly funny and poignant, the play exposes the complexities of human relationships and the brutality of raw honesty.

Directed by Christopher Luscombe, The Argument features one of the UK’s best-loved actresses Kelicity Kendal (The Good Life), Rupert Vansittart (Game of Thrones, Gentlemen Jack), Esh Alladi (Absolute Hell, A Confession) and Sarah Earnshaw (Wicked, Scrooge).  


**** ‘Framed by Simon Higlett’s chic two-level set, director Christopher Luscombe teases out the rich vein of comedy to be found in human relationships under strain.’ The Stage.

‘Sprinkled with Boyd’s exemplary wit and verbal dexerity…Christopher Luscombe directs an impeccable cast.’ British Theatre Guide.

‘Brilliantly convincing action with a super set…the Theatre Royal seem to have another winner on their hands.’ Western Daily Press.

The Argument plays at Theatre Royal Bath until the 24th August. Buy tickets here.
