Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsal for THE SLAVES OF SOLITUDE at Hampstead Theatre

Hampstead Theatre presents the world premiere of Nicholas Wright's The Slaves of Solitude, directed by Jonathan Kent. Adapted from PatRick Hamilton's much-loved story, this new play weaves a fascinating blend of dark hilarity and melancholy in a story about an improbable heroine in wartime Britain.

The production begins previews Friday 20 October for an opening on Monday 30 October 2017, and BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

1943, Henley-on-Thames. Miss Roach is forced by the war to flee London for the Rosamund Tea Rooms boarding house, which is as grey and lonely as its residents. From the safety of these new quarters, her war now consists of a thousand petty humiliations, of which the most burdensome is sharing her daily life with the unbearable Mr. Thwaites.

But a breath of fresh air arrives in the form of a handsome American Lieutenant and things start to look distinctly brighter... Until, that is, a seeming friend moves into the room adjacent to Miss Roach's, upsetting the precariously balanced ecosystem of the house...
