  • Overview
    A day in the life of Peggy Ramsay, the most celebrated play agent of her time. Set in her chaotic office, Peggy for You is a gloriously witty, wry and unsentimental account of this extraordinary woman as she takes on principalities, powers, producers and, above all, playwrights. Eccentric, intimidating, contradictory and inspiring, she ruled an anarchic roost, including dramatists as famous and diverse as Joe Orton, Caryl Churchill, Christopher Hampton, Henry Livings, Stephen Poliakoff, Alan Ayckbourn, Edward Bond and, for thirty years, Plater himself. Mail on Sunday critic Georgina Brown described the play as: "Witty, affectionate and keenly observed, the play captures a gloriously eccentric spirit, bursting with remarkable, exasperating and undeniably vile traits... A hugely entertaining lesson in good writing...". The play premièred at the Hampstead Theatre, London, 23 November 1999.
