Menier Chocolate Factory announces UK Premiere of Power Of Sail

The Menier Chocolate Factory has announced the UK Premiere of Paul Grellong’s Power Of Sail.

Power Of Sail

With its critically acclaimed production of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Pacific Overtures running at the venue, the Menier Chocolate Factory today announces the European première of Paul Grellong’s Power of Sail. Dominic Dromgoole returns to the company, after the success of last year’s Marjorie Prime, to direct.

All hell breaks loose when Harvard professor Charles Nichols invites a contentious white nationalist to his yearly symposium. His colleagues are very concerned about how this will affect both his and the University’s reputation; his students are vociferously protesting.
However, Charles refuses to budge. Is there another agenda?

Written by Paul Grellong, whose television credits include The Boys and Law & Order: SVU, this moral thriller investigates the thin line between hate and freedom of speech – who bears the ultimate cost?  This UK première, directed by Dominic Dromgoole, promises to be one of the most talked-about plays of the year.

Power Of Sail runs at the Menier Chocolate Factory from 20 March – 18 May 2024.

Direction: Dominic Dromgoole; Design: Paul Farnsworth; Lighting Design: Oliver Fenwick
