    Matthew Bourne's triumphant Play Without Words opens at Sadler's Wells to rave reviews

    Matthew Bourne's triumphant multi Olivier Award-winning dance masterpiece Play Without Words has opened at Sadler's Wells to rave reviews and runs through until 5 August.

    Set in Chelsea in 1965 and praised as "Bourne's best work" (The Observer), Matthew Bourne's Play Without Words peels back the façade of domestic social order as a rich couple's lives are turned upside down by the arrival of their new manservant.

    Based on the 1960s film The Servant this sexy, chic and thrilling dance drama, performed to a sultry live jazz score, revels in the struggle for power, territory and sexual domination. See an interview with Matthew Bourne and the creative team behind the show that has been described as "an irresistible storm of Sixties chic" (Daily Telegraph).
