THE CUT by Mark Ravenhill – one of the most widely-performed playwrights in British theatre


THE CUT på The Donmar Warehouse London 2006, Paul (Ian McKellen), Emma Beattie and Jimmy Akingbola © Robert Workman 


1 F / 3 M 

Paul is a completely ordinary man with a shocking secret. At home he is a loving husband and father but at his governmental job he has a special assignment. He sits at the final desk which you must pass if you wish to escape the lust and suffering of this world. He is no Saint Peter and Paul does not own the keys to heaven. However, he administrates the mechanism that executes….the cut. His function makes the world a worse place and Paul struggles with his guilt. It would all be better if his family knew what he was doing. Or perhaps they already know? Mark Ravenhill’s play takes place in a grotesque scenario and is a dark, simultaneously and comical version of the future. It was performed for the first time at the Donmar Warehouse with Ian McKellen as the main character.
