Power of Sail Tickets – Menier Chocolate Factory

When Harvard professor Charles Nichols offers an invitation to a contentious white nationalist to his annual symposium, all hell breaks loose.

His colleagues all express concern about how this will affect both his and the reputation of the University; his students are protesting vociferously. Charles, however, refuses to budge. Could there be another agenda?

Dominic Dromgoole directs the production that stars Julian Ovenden (Charles Nichols), Katie Bernstein (Maggie), Tanya Franks (Amy), Paul Rider (Frank), and Georgia Landers (Quinn).

Written by Paul Grellong, The Power Of Sail is a moral and thought-provoking thriller investigating the fragile and painfully thin line between freedom of speech and hate – and who ultimately bears the cost.

This production at the Menier Chocolate Factory is co-produced with previous Menier collaborator Daryl Roth and opens on 28th March, with previews from the 20th March, and will showcase for a strictly limited 8-week run until 12th May.

Menier Chocolate Factory Seating Plan

The Menier Chocolate Factory is a small and intimate off West End venue located about a five minute walk from London Bridge Station in Southwark Street that has one level of seating with a capacity of 180 seats.

The bench seating within the venue can feel a little cramped when the auditorium is full to capacity but does however benefit from a good raking which offers a very good view of the stage. The ‘stage’ itself is on floor level and relatively small which offers an intimate and immersive theatrical experience. There is very little difference in the pricing of seats in the venue due to it being on a single level and its small size, however the centre section seats are usually priced slightly dearer.

The Menier Chocolate Factory also has several rehearsal rooms and a cosy restaurant and welcoming bar which is surrounded with posters from previous shows and surprisingly affordable, making it an ideal venue for a date night.

From £42.00
