The full cast is announced for the premiere of Winner’s Curse written by Daniel Taub and directed by Jez Bond coming to Park Theatre 8 February – 11 March 2023.
TV and radio personality Clive Anderson stars in an interactive theatrical look at the difficult world of international relations, written by former ambassador and Middle East peace negotiator Daniel Taub with Dan Patterson, writer/producer on Mock The Week and The Duck House.
Joining Clive Anderson are Michael Maloney (The Crown), Greg Lockett (The Mousetrap), Barrie Rutter (Richard III), Winnie Arhin (Big Girl Words), Nichola McAuliffe (Living) and Arthur Conti making his professional stage debut.
The show continues the long-standing relationship between Clive Anderson and Dan Patterson, who have previously worked together on shows including Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Clive Anderson’s Chat Room, and sees Anderson return to Park Theatre to be directed by the theatre’s Artistic Director Jez Bond after appearing in Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] 2.
Two countries are locked in battle over a strip of land when a fragile ceasefire provides a chance for peace. Over the negotiating table, cynical diplomats, idealistic peacemakers and meddling mediators try to navigate a perilous path to agreement as the threat of continued conflict looms ever larger.
Writer Daniel Taub said “Anyone who has participated in international peace talks can attest that things are very different in theory and in practice. It’s wonderful to be able to share some of these unique experiences though an interactive drama about high stakes conflict resolution. Hopefully people will go home with some news tools in their toolkits for dealing with tough negotiations in their own lives.”
