Diana Rigg stars in Joanna Murray-Smith's tale of a mature marriage thrown into crisis. Read More >

HonourDiana Rigg plays Honor, the wife of George (Martin Jarvis), for whom she gave up a promising literary career. The arrival of ambitious journalist Claudia (played by Natascha McElhone) to interview George ignites a crisis that precipitates both unforeseen consequences and equally surprising resolutions, affecting both the couple and their grown-up daughter Sophie.

Honour received its UK premiere in 2003 at the National’s Cottesloe theatre, where it sold out.

Diana Rigg’s career has seen the theatrical Dame take many varied roles. On screen she has played a Bond girl (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), a thespian murderer’s assistant (Theatre Of Blood) and faithful servant Mrs Danvers (Rebecca) among many other characters. Between 1959 and 1964 she worked extensively with the RSC, while more recent theatre credits include Suddenly Last Summer, Humble Boy, Mother Courage and Medea.

Martin Jarvis’s film credits include the film’s Titanic and Buster, while Natascha McElhone has starred in films including The Truman Show and Ladies In Lavender.
