Nineteen Gardens by Magdalena Miecznicka at Hampstead Theatre

A UK playwriting debut and world premiere play by Polish author, journalist and playwright Magdalena Miecznicka.

3rd November – 9th December, Hampstead Theatre, London

A UK playwriting debut at Hampstead Theatre by Magdalena Miecznicka with Nineteen Gardens, an intimate two-hander directed by Alice Hamilton and starring Olivia Le Andersen and David Sturzaker.

Nineteen Gardens has its world premiere in the theatre’s Downstairs space from 3 November to 9 December 2023 (press night Thursday 9 November, 7pm).

About the Play

Enigmatic and explosive, Nineteen Gardens, delves into the complex lives of two lovers entangled by an extramarital affair.

Nearly two years after the end of their affair, John and Aga meet once more.  Each has filled the void left by the other: he has withdrawn into his world of wealth and privilege; she has found herself working as a chambermaid to support her family.  Both recognise that the spark between them is still there.  Will they rekindle what they had, or is an altogether darker game about to be played out…?

Magdalena Miecznicka

Magdalena Miecznicka’s lyrical human comedy is by turns seductive, enigmatic and explosive. The author of several novels in Polish, Miecznicka is also a journalist and literary critic.  Now based in London, Nineteen Gardens is her first play in English.

Alice Hamilton is Hampstead Theatre’s Associate Director.  Her credits include the Downstairs productions of Every Day I Make Greatness Happen and Paradise, and The Dumb Waiter and The Memory of Water on Hampstead’s Main Stage.

Tickets for Nineteen Gardens are available from £10 and are on sale now via Hampstead Theatre’s website.
