To add to the list of big star names heading to London’s theatreland in 2013, Zoë Wanamaker returned to the West End in Peter Nichol’s black comedy of love and lust, Passion Play in 01 May 2013.
The official blurb goes like this:
Comfortably married for 25 years, James and Eleanor’s world is upended when James agrees to a secret rendezvous with their recently widowed friend Kate. Fib by fib, the affair strips the marriage bare and reveals the illicit desires and hidden passions that lie beneath the everyday facade.
Zoë Wanamaker is probably best known at the moment for her appearances in Harry Potter and the long running BBC1 sitcom My Family. She was last seen in the West End in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons.
Director David Leveaux over sees Nichol’s glorious meeting of humour, eroticism and duplicity.
Passion Play won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play.
Theatre breaks for Passion Play will be available soon.
