Date Posted: 29/05/2013

The Donmar Warehouse in London’s autumn season will kick off with a new play by Nick Payne. The Same Deep Water As Me will run from 1st August to 21st September and stars Nigel Lindsay, Daniel Mays and Monica Dolan.

Nick Payne won last year’s Evening Standard Award for Best New Play for Constellations.

The Same Deep Water As Me – a synopsis

Had an accident at work? Tripped on a paving slab? Cut yourself shaving? You could be entitled to compensation. Andrew and Barry at Scorpion Claims, Luton's finest personal injury lawyers, are the men for you.

When Kevin, Andrew's high school nemesis, appears in his office the opportunity for a quick win arises. But just how fast does a lie have to spin before it gets out of control?

Education workshops and schools performances

The Donmar will also run a programme of education workshops, projects and dedicated schools performances to sit alongside its forthcoming season.

Over 1,000 school pupils will be given the opportunity to see a Donmar production at a reduced cost of £5 each, and each production will be accompanied by two practical open workshops.
