An Intervention

By Mike Bartlett

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A touching, funny play about what happens when you hate your best friend.

One of them went on the anti-war protest, shouted their lungs out, then got horrendously and staggeringly drunk. The other stayed at home, watched TV for a bit, and thought about the future.

Mike Bartlett's play An Intervention premiered at the Watford Palace Theatre in April 2014, in a co-production with Paines Plough.

Note to Performers: The play can be performed by a man and a woman, as in the original cast, or by an all-male or all-female cast. The author specifies that 'the two characters must be quick and clever but can be played by actors of any age, gender or ethnicity. The genders of the pronouns in the play should be changed accordingly.'

Press Quotes

'Engaged, entertaining and forthright... not only politically engaged but also fiercely uncompromising in its mission to entertain'

Exeunt Magazine

'Incisive, intimate, closely focused… has Bartlett's astute wit and extraordinary ability to pinpoint the way maturity can suddenly slip away'

Financial Times

'Superb… intensely dramatic'

WhatsOnStage

'Nimble and elegant… [a] smart two-hander'
