Spring 2013 sees multi Olivier Award-winner Zoë Wanamaker visit Richmond prior to her return to the West End in Passion Play, Peter Nichols’s celebrated black comedy about love and infidelity.

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 every day facade.

A glorious meeting of humour, eroticism and duplicity, this modern classic and winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best Play makes a much-anticipated return to the West End, reuniting Director David Leveaux (Arcadia, The Late Middle Classes, Betrayal) with Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter, BBC1’s My Family and most recently in the West End in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons) for the first time since their Olivier Award-winning collaboration on Electra (Donmar Warehouse/Broadway).
