Based on true events, Orson’s Shadow is a sharp and witty play that proves that drama is not always confined to the stage.
An ingenious tale of two Hollywood giants—Orson Welles and Laurence Olivier. The time is 1960; the place is a West End theater. Legendary critic Kenneth Tynan has made a startling proposal: Welles should direct Olivier and the young Joan Plowright in Rhinoceros, Ionesco’s absurdist masterpiece. But it is the rehearsal process that brims with absurdity as titanic personalities wrestle the muse in this witty and incisive depiction of drama, both on and off-stage.
