“It’s an extremely gripping and suspenseful story, very human and gritty,” says Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning director, David Auburn. “The sexual politics are surprisingly modern, radical even. Anna is a former prostitute who’s trying to leave her past behind, but when she’s rejected for that past she defends herself in some very surprising ways. The play still has the capacity to shock – to make the audience gasp. That’s pretty remarkable 90 years on.”
