  • Joint Winner of the John Whiting Award - 1993

New York. A film studio. A young woman has an urgent story to tell.

But here, people are products, movies are money and sex sells. And the rights to your life can be a dangerous commodity to exploit.

Martin Crimp's razor-sharp satire, The Treatment, was first seen at the Royal Court Theatre in 1993. It was revived at the Almeida Theatre, London, in 2017, in a production directed by Lyndsey Turner.

The Treatment was the joint winner of the 1993 John Whiting Award.

Press Quotes

'A sharp satire... what is striking is how, after nearly a quarter of a century, Crimp's play has acquired new potency'


'Disarmingly prescient… Crimp's dialogue has elliptical poetic snap and a canny ear'


'Troubling, intoxicating and thoroughly entertaining'

The Times

'Both sharply funny and profoundly disturbing… it shimmers with dark brilliance, and insight'


'Darkly entertaining… has a mordant wit, its darker energies underpinned by a strangely screwball quality'

Time Out

'With its echoes of Pinter, this play is a brilliantly written, metaphor-rich, depiction of perversion and desire'

The Arts Desk

'With hauntingly accurate observations of society and a writing style so instinctive and shrewd, it is one of the most ingeniously coined pieces of theatre I have ever seen'
