by Dougie Blaxland in collaboration with First Draft Theatre Company
Ariella Eshed directs a brilliant new political satire with resonances of Orwell’s 1984 and Marlowe’s Dr. Faustus, A Public Kind of Privacy tells the tale of a rising political star struggling to reconcile a sense of her past self with her role in a government administration which infiltrates all areas of her life. A Public Kind of Privacy has been developed as a full length play by First Draft Theatre with the support of the Arts Council. It was first staged as a 35 minute one act play at The Hen and Chickens Islington in July 2006.
