Olivier Award-winner Zoë Wanamaker and Tony Award-winner Owen Teale star in Passion Play, a provocative comedy about love, sex and infidelity.
Comfortably married for 25 years, Eleanor's world is turned upside down when her husband begins an affair with their young friend Kate. As the lies mount up, the marriage is stripped bare, revealing illicit desires and hidden passions.
A potent mix of desire, intimacy and deception, this modern classic by Peter Nichols (Privates on Parade, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg) and winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best Play makes a much-anticipated return to the West End, and is directed by David Leveaux (Arcadia, Betrayal, The Real Thing). Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter, My Family and Arthur Miller's All My Sons) and Owen Teale (West End and Broadway's A Doll's House, RSC's King Lear and Sky1's Stella) will be joined on stage by Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey, Outnumbered, Miss Moneypenny in James Bond), Oliver Cotton (BBC's Ripper Street, The Dark Knight Rises), Siân Thomas (Donmar's Richard II, Merlin, Harry Potter) and Annabel Scholey (Lady Anne opposite Kevin Spacey in Richard III, Eastenders, Jayne Eyre).
Please note: Zoe Wanamaker will not be performing on 25th or 26th June. The role of Eleanor will be played by Ruth Redman on those dates.
