Video: Writer Simon Vinnicombe introduces R and D

Simon Vinnicombe introduces his absorbing Hampstead debut R and D.


R and D runs Downstairs 22 September – 22 October. Click here for more information and tickets.

David sets his brother Lewis up on a blind date with April. April is like no woman Lewis has ever met before. She is beautiful, kind and intelligent. In fact, she seems perfect, perhaps even too perfect to be real…

Simon Vinnicombe’s absorbing Hampstead debut asks what’s more powerful: science or the soul? And when it comes to our obsession with ‘research and development’, how far is too far in the search for ‘progress’?

Simon’s previous credits include Cradle Me and Year 10 (both Finborough), Wisdom (Manhattan Theatre Club) and A Night with the Apathists (Union Theatre).

Director Nadia Fall makes her Hampstead debut. Her previous credits include Our Country’s GoodDara and Chewing Gum Dreams (all National Theatre) and Way Upstream (Chichester Festival Theatre).
