Power of Sail

All hell breaks loose when Harvard professor Charles Nichols invites a contentious white nationalist to his yearly symposium.

His colleagues are very concerned about how this will affect both his and the University’s reputation; his students are vociferously protesting. However, Charles refuses to budge. Is there another agenda?

Dominic Dromgoole directs Julian Ovenden (Charles Nichols), Tanya Franks (Amy), Katie Bernstein (Maggie), Georgia Landers (Quinn) and Paul Rider (Frank).

Written by Paul Grellong (The Boys and Law & Order: SVU), this moral thriller investigates the thin line between hate and freedom of speech - who bears the ultimate cost?

This production - co-produced with Daryl Roth, who previously collaborated with the Menier on the critically acclaimed production of Indecent - opens on 28th March, with previews from the 20th March, and plays for a strictly limited 8 week run until 12 May.
