The Menier Chocolate Factory once again finds itself staging an anticipated and much-admired play as The Grönholm Method, first seen in Barcelona in 2003, finally makes its UK debut at the Southwark venue.
Catalan writer Jordi Galceran earned a big hit with The Grönholm Method, which later appeared at venues around the world following its premiere, and now this translated version (by Anne García-Romero and Mark St. Germain) lands in London with a stellar cast working under the direction of BT Nicholl.
This will be a show to see in 2018, with a tense and memorable plot, plus some stand-out performances.
That plot centres on the characters of Frank (Jonathan Cake), Carl, (Greg McHugh), Rick (John Gordon Sinclair) and Melanie (Laura Pitt-Pulford) and we find them in New York as candidates for a big job at a Fortune 500 company. During the gripping play we will explore the lengths in which they are willing to sink to succeed in a world that requires them to rise to the top.
Performer Jonathan Cake will provide one of many memorable faces for the production, having previously appeared in a range of shows on both sides of the Atlantic, from A Flea In Her Ear at the Old Vic Theatre to a US tour of Medea. He has also made his way to television screens, with roles in Desperate Housewives and Empire, amongst many others.
And now he steps onto the stage of the Menier Chocolate Factory, a venue that is regularly the home to some top shows. It is a great place to witness talked-about productions and, in some cases, future West End hits.
The Grönholm Method is at the Menier Chocolate Factory in Southwark from Tuesday 22nd May 2018 (previews from Thursday 10th May 2018).
