Arthur Miller’s ‘Incident at Vichy’ opens at the Finborough Theatre on 28 March, 2017


By Arthur Miller

Directed by Phil Willmott

“Jews are not a race, you know. They can look like anybody.”

The first professional London production in over 50 years of Arthur Miller’s drama Incident at Vichy, directed by multi-award-winning director Phil Willmott, opens at the Finborough Theatre for a four week limited season on Tuesday, 28 March 2017.

Arthur Miller’s largely forgotten masterpiece about Jewish registration in Nazi occupied France burns with a terrifying topical intensity.

Incident at Vichy premiered on Broadway at the ANTA Washington Square Theatre in December 1964, directed by Harold Clurman, and was last seen professionally in London in January 1966 at the Phoenix Theatre.

In the detention room of a Vichy police station in 1942, eight men have been picked up for questioning but none are told why they are held, or when they can leave.

At first, their hopeful guess is that only their identity papers will be checked – but as each man is removed for interrogation, some are set free, some are never seen again, and the stakes rise for those who remain…

A haunting examination of the cold, bureaucratic efficiency of evil – and the shared humanity that might overcome it.

Cast Includes: Gethin Alderman, Lawrence Boothman, James Boyd, Andro Crespo, Daniel Dowling, Paul Easom, Jeremy Gagan, Timothy Harker, Edward Killingback, Brendan O’Rourke, Michael Skellern, PK Taylor and Henry Wyrley-Birch.

Designed by Georgia de Grey. Lighting by Robbie Butler. Costume Design by Penn O’Gara.  Produced by Anita Creed Productions for The Phil Willmott Company and The Steam Industry.
