Zoë Wanamaker returns to the London stage to reprise her acclaimed role as poet Stevie Smith in Hugh Whitemore’s award-winning play Stevie at the Hampstead Theatre.

A biographical snapshot of both the poet and the private woman, Stevie tells the story of a publishing company’s secretary who spends her evenings with her beloved aunt in a world of Battenberg cake, gossip and ginger nuts while still managing to write the piercing poetry and prose that will one day make her famous.

Double Olivier Award winner Wanamaker, who played the eponymous heroine during the play’s run at Chichester Festival Theatre in 2014, stars in the production following recent appearances in Passion Play at the Duke Of York’s Theatre and The Cherry Orchard at the National Theatre. Best known for her film and television roles, which include the Harry Potter films and hit BBC comedy My Family, Wanamaker returns to the Hampstead Theatre following her appearance in 1994’s Dead Funny.

The Chichester Festival Theatre co-production is directed by Christopher Morahan.
