Gwen Taylor and Clare Burt lead the cast of Sunspots, David Lewis’ offbeat romantic comedy offering an unusual twist on the traditional boy-meets-girl story.

It tells the tale of Tom, whose life is in upheaval again, as he rediscovers his father’s telescope and his childhood passion for star-gazing. But between studying constellations, a beautiful girl sunbathing on a neighbouring rooftop catches his eye and, using maximum magnification, he notices a funny-looking mole on her back.

Should Tom find a way to inform her about his concerns? Is it really anxiety about her health or actually a voyeuristic attraction that drives his desire to meet her? And how can he do anything without his inquisitive family getting in the way?

Director Charlotte Gwinner makes her Hampstead debut with the production, directing a cast that also includes Charlotte Emmerson, Robert Hands and Laurence Mitchell.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
