The Mistress Contract by Abi Morgan at the Royal Court Theatre


1 F / 1 M

For 30 years, they have followed the agreement that she provides him with sexual services in exchange for him securing her a home and a steady income. Back then, she, a highly educated, intelligent woman and active feminist, asked her wealthy lover to sign a document defining their unconventional lifestyle: The Mistress Contract. Was her proposal a deception against everything she and the women of her generation had fought for? Or was it brave, honest and radical? The play is based on an anonymous couple’s actual tape recordings of conversations about their relationship recorded over several years.
