In the opulent Presidential Palace of an unnamed country, four women await the arrival of the embattled dictator -- his wife, her best friend, a British journalist, and a translator -- while a revolution grows violent outside. As the political tension escalates, time refracts and earlier scenes replay from different perspectives. Morgan, the award-winning British playwright and screenwriter (The Iron Lady, Suffragette), takes the audience on a breath-taking journey with a fascinating theatricality that is at once compassionate, dispassionate, and probing. “Splendour gleams with ice-cool wit, glistens with the sweat of animal fear.” - Time Out
