Everyone has a different view. Amy’s view is that love conquers all.
In 1979 Amy visits her mother, the West End actress Esme Allen, with a big favour to ask and a brash new boyfriend in tow. When the pair meet, Amy will find the views she holds so dear are painfully tested as she has to decide what’s worth fighting for. What none of them can know is that the events of that day will set in motion a chain reaction which will dramatically change their lives forever.
Spanning a period of sixteen years, Amy’s View is a play about women, family, love and loss, set in an England corroded by the political forces of the 1980s.
Written by acclaimed playwright David Hare, Amy’s View was first performed in 1998 at the National Theatre before transferring to the West End and Broadway.
