Sean Delaney and Martin McDougall in Beth Steel's Labyrinth at Hampstead Theatre

LABYRINTH

 Labyrinth is a surreal financial thriller that explores the fall out of one of the most catastrophic economic crises of modern history. Opening in New York in the late 1970s, the play follows John Anderson, barely out of college, as he jets across the globe selling loans to Latin American countries eager to borrow...and there are many. When the banks go into meltdown, the world economy is brought to the brink, and John struggles to hold together his fracturing sanity.

 

Labyrinth received its world premiere at the Hampstead Theatre, London, 2016, in a production directed by Anna Ledwich.

"Labyrinth is Latin America's wildly entertaining answer to Wall Street ... richly researched, it’s insistently useful and almost indecently entertaining." ★★★★
