Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsal For the UK Premiere of THE HEIGHT OF THE STORM
Multi award-winning star of screen and stage Jonathan Pryce will star as 'Andre', and three-time Olivier award-winning Dame Eileen Atkins will star as 'Madeleine' in The Height of the Storm, in the UK premiere of a new compelling family drama by Florian Zeller, the internationally acclaimed writer of The Father.
Directed by Jonathan Kent, The Height of the Storm will open at Richmond Theatre on Saturday 1 September and play Cambridge Arts Theatre and Bath Theatre Royal, before transferring to London, opening at Wyndham's Theatre on Tuesday 2 October, with a press night on Tuesday 9 October.
Andre and Madeleine have been in love for over fifty years. This weekend, as their daughters visit, something feels unusual. A bunch of flowers arrives, but who sent them? A woman from the past turns up, but who is she? And why does Andre feel like he isn't there at all?
The Height of the Storm is a beautifully compelling family drama by Florian Zeller, "the most exciting playwright of our time" (The Guardian). Starring two of the greatest actors of their generation on stage together for the first time, this major new play from the writer of Olivier Award-Winning The Father is a searing exploration of love, family and the fragility of life.
The Height of the Storm is translated by Christopher Hampton, directed by Jonathan Kent (Gypsy, Long Day's Journey into Night) and produced by Simon Friend, Mark Goucher and Howard Panter. Co- producers will be Gavin Kalin, ACT Productions and Scott Landis.
