Olivia Poulet (The Thick of It and In The Loop) has been announced to star in a first revival of Mark Ravenhill’s Product at the Arcola Theatre.
Product is a satirical and ferocious monologue which interrogates the media’s response to terrorism, whilst exploring society’s desperate need for a narrative and its insistence on finding closure. It tells the story of a producer, pitching a dire script about a 9/11 widow who falls in love with a Muslim suicide bomber, and the play showcases Ravenhill’s perfectly observed satire of Hollywood’s worst clichés.
The fifty-minute piece will run at the Arcola between Monday 27th April and Saturday 23rd May 2015, with performances at 8pm.
