The Trial Of Jane Fonda

Park Theatre, Clifton Terrace, Finsbury Park, London N4 3JP

The Park Theatre hosts the London debut of Terry Jastrow’s tense historical drama The Trial Of Jane Fonda, with Golden Globe-winner and Academy Award nominee Anne Archer playing the titular role.

Set in 1972 at the heart of the Vietnam War, the show centres on Jane Fonda, a soldiers’ favourite pin-up and American acting icon, but also a notoriously outspoken activist against the conflict.

During a protest visit to North Vietnam, Fonda is photographed clapping astride a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun, a move which held grave ramifications for her reputation in her homeland. Rebranded ‘Hanoi Jane’, her very career on screen is placed in jeopardy by furious veterans, who halt filming of a 1988 movie co-starring her and Robert De Niro – so she decides to meet them.

Retracing Fonda’s steps in the face of adversity, battling a room full of angry men for whom the war still rages, Jastrow pens a powerful conjecture as to the content of that meeting, with Fonda fighting to stop her past from dictating her future.

West End star Alex Gaumond co-stars.
