Atlantic City. 1988. Jonny and Rebecca are very much in love and very much in debt. He’s a struggling singer-songwriter who spends most of his time playing backup for Annie at the Oasis Casino Hotel Resort, and she works part-time at the casino and for a local charity. They struggle to make ends meet but they’re happy and that’s enough.
Or is it?
When wealthy stranger Larry Harris arrives in town and offers Rebecca a million dollars to spend a night with him, will the lure of money outweigh the promise of fidelity? Will Rebecca accept Larry’s indecent proposal? Will her marriage survive if she doesn’t? Will Jonny stick around if she does?
Indecent Proposal is inspired by the Jack Engelhard book and was later adapted into the 1993 film. This musical adaptation features music by Dylan Schlosberg and book and lyrics by Michael Conley and is directed by Charlotte Westenra. It is produced by Neil Marcus for 10 to 4 Production, with musical supervision by John Reddell. The creative team also includes set and costume design by Anna Kelsey, lighting design by Hartley Kemp and movement by Jane McMurtrie.
Indecent Proposal will play at the Southwark Playhouse from the 22nd October until the 27th November.
