About Accolade

Rising star Director Blanche McIntyre (Best Director 2013, UK Theatre Awards) directs Emlyn Williams’ rediscovered 1950s classic of sex, scandal and blackmail, which still feels startlingly and brilliantly modern. 

As relevant now as when it first shocked audiences in 1950, this gripping thriller was awarded Time Out’s Best Off-West End Production and three Off-West End Awards including Best Production when it was presented at the Finborough Theatre in 2011.

The setting is London, 1950. Private and public worlds collide when author Will Trenting’s knighthood attracts the glare of the British press. 

Will is forced to battle against the exposure of his secret life and the double standards of a society bent on destroying him.
