The team at Watford Palace Theatre are delighted to announce that Paines Plough’s Joint Artistic Director James Grieve directs Rachael Stirling and John Hollingworth in the World Premiere of Mike Bartlett’s new play, An Intervention.

An Intervention is the latest co-production from Watford Palace Theatre and Paines Plough, the company behind last spring’s award-winning Jumpers for Goalposts; and forms part of Paines Plough’s 40th Anniversary Season.

Rachael Stirling played the title role in Watford Palace Theatre’s co-production of Medea in 2012 – adapted by Mike Bartlett – and has more recently starred in ITV’s The Bletchely Circle. John Hollingworth returns to Watford following his role in Out of Joint’s Our Country’s Good in 2012.

Two friends. One of them went on the anti-war protest, shouted their lungs out, then got horrendously and staggeringly drunk. The other stayed at home, watched TV for a bit, and thought about the future.
