Insignificance Theatre & Performing Arts

insignificance


Written by Olivier Award winner Terry Johnson, this hilarious and bittersweet comedy receives its first London revival in over 20 years.

Over one night in a hotel room, the characters grapple playfully with the difficulties of knowing the world, each other and themselves.

Insignificance premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 1982, and was voted one of the top hundred plays in the NT2000 Platform series. It won Terry Johnson the Plays & Players Award for Best Play, and the Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright.

'What if four icons of Ike's America - Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein, Joe DiMaggio and Senator McCarthy - met in a New York hotel room in 1953?... [Insignificance is] a piece that works on just about every level: the intellectual, the emotional, the playful...one of the landmark plays of the decade' (The Guardian).
