A radical, modern-day re-interpretation of Arthur Schnitzler's taboo-breaking 1897 play La Ronde, with its 'daisy chain' of sexual encounters.
In place of Schnitzler's soldiers, poets and aristocrats in fin-de-siecle Vienna, Alexandra Wood's play Unbroken gives us the interns, rockstars and office workers of 21st-century London, all inextricably linked by sex.
Unbroken was first performed at The Gate Theatre, London, in 2009.
