About the show

The Public Administration And Constitutional Affairs Committee Takes Oral Evidence On Whitehall’s Relationship With Kids Company is a new musical based on controversial Kids Company hearing. It plays as part of the Donmar Warehouse’s Power Season.

Created by Josie Rourke, Hadley Fraser and Tom Deering, The Public Administration And Constitutional Affairs Committee Takes Oral Evidence On Whitehall’s Relationship With Kids Company, is not just a contender for the musical with the longest title in living memory.  It’s also a potentially fascinating look into the inquiry that occurred following the collapse of charity Kids Company.

Entirely not endorsed by any of the people associated with the inquiry in real life, Committee, as the show title is shortened to, uses verbatim words taken from the document produced by the inquiry. The main voices represented belong to Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh and Alan Yentob, who served on the board of trustees for the company.

The charity’s sudden collapse caused a media sensation, helped along by the charismatic figure of Batmanghelidjh. The links to high profile public names and the work the company did with vulnerable children jarred with the scandal and subsequent inquiry. At its heart was a row about the mismanagement of funds and donations.

Sandra Marvin leads the Committee cast as Batmanghelidjh, with Omar Ebrahim playing Yentob. Alexander Hanson, Rosemary Ashe, Robert Hands, Liz Robertson, Anthony O’Donnell, David Albury and Joanna Kirkland also appear.

Committee plays at the Donmar Warehouse as part of the Power Season that also includes Limehouse and The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui.

Adam Penford directs the production, with design by Robert Jones and sound design by Nick Lidster.

The Public Administration And Constitutional Affairs Committee Takes Oral Evidence On Whitehall’s Relationship With Kids Company runs at the Donmar Warehouse from 24 June – 12 August 2017.
