Shaun Evans and Miranda Raison star in this modern metropolitan guide to falling in (and out) of love directed by Tamara Harvey.
Peter Souter’s first stage play, Hello/Goodbye charts the story of Juliet as she seeks a fresh start in the new year. As she begins moving into her new flat, she finds amidst the boxes a strange guy who is also moving in. He says his agency has messed up and he’s not budging, but the real problem is that, well, he’s rather gorgeous.
Best known for his long-running role as the young Morse in ITV drama series Endeavour, Evans returns to the London stage for the first time since 2009’s Kurt And Sid at the Trafalgar Studios. Spooks star Raison, who has been a regular face on stage in recent years, boasts credits including Strangers On A Train at the Gielgud Theatre and The River at the Royal Court.
Harvey, whose recent directing credits include Tim Rice musical From Here To Eternity, returns to the Swiss Cottage venue following her production of In The Vale Of Health. Hello/Goodbye’s cast also includes Luke Neal and Bathsheba Piepe.
Hello/Goodbye previously played in the Hampstead Theatre Downstairs in 2013.
