The strains of jazz, swing and stride spill from every bar and fill the airwaves of Chicago. It’s 1936 and confidence trickster Johnny Hooker is set on revenge for the murder of his friend, Luther, by powerful and dangerous mobster, Doyle Lonnegan. Teaming up with the greatest con artist of them all, Henry Gondorff, together they plot to pull off The Sting, an outrageous and elaborate con trick designed to rob Lonnegan of his fortune. With a charismatic cast to lure you into this sleazy, sharp-suited underworld of con men and scams, with twists and surprises at every turn, you won't know who's on the level and who's on the take as you watch this ingenious and comic tale of deception unfold.
This brand new adaptation, based on the successful 1973 film of the same title, will be in celebration of the end of Wilton's Capital Project. Directed by Peter Joucla, it follows in the footsteps of the sell-out success The Great Gatsby in 2012 and 2013.
A full length play by David Rogers
Based upon the screenplay “The Sting” by David Ward

Set to music by an unknown seventeenth-century composer, this opera is a biting satire on patients, doctors, and medical practice, providing a unique and radical platform – or “voice” – to four characters, who exhibit various psychological and social disorders. A contemporary, immersive production sewn into the heart of Wilton’s Music Hall brings this provocative work to life amidst the purgatorial wasteland of a dilapidated modern hospital, where vulnerable patients await the arrival of an enigmatic doctor who they hope will restore their sanity – but at what cost?
