The Respectable Prostitute is the story that sparked a major international film. Jean-Paul Sartre’s play returns to the stage after nearly 75 years.

1940s America is hot, steamy, and wild. Neon signs fill the streets with light while a sinister air blows. Powerful people spread false truths for their personal ambition.

In the midst of lies, fake news, racism and other daily affronts in the southern United States, an innocent prostitute wants to tell the truth about a brutal murder while an influential senator tries to convince her otherwise.

Directed by Lisa Forrell whose work includes American Justice (Arts Theatre) and Dark at the Top of the Stairs (Belgrade Theatre, Coventry).

Produced by Jonathan Taylor whose work includes Hamlet (Stratford Playhouse), The Remarkables (Edinburgh Fringe Festival), The Wind of Heaven (Finborough Theatre).

The first UK production in 1947 was directed by Peter Brook.
A film adaptation, La Putain Respectueuse was released in 1952.

This production is dedicated to the memory of Marcel Berlins.
