Onassis tells the tale of the final years in the life of Aristotle Onassis, including his passionate and interwoven relationships with Jackie Kennedy and Maria Callas, and his son Alexandros.

Based on Peter Evans’s book Nemesis, Onassis is an explosive account of how those in positions of enormous power and wealth often live lives detached from the realities and moral codes of everyday existence.

Robert Lindsay leads the cast of Onassis. Best known for his television appearances in series including Citizen Smith, My Family and GBH, for which he won a BAFTA Award, his theatre credits include The Entertainer, Richard III, Oliver! and Me And My Girl.

Anna Francolini, who plays Maria Callas in Onassis, boasts credits including Merrily We Roll Along and Company at the Donmar Warehouse, and Caroline Or Change at the National Theatre. Lydia Leonard, who plays Jackie Kennedy in Onassis, has London stage credits including Frost/Nixon and has appeared on television in Ashes To Ashes, Casualty 1907 and The 39 Steps.
