Zoë Wanamaker West End return in Passion Play – Duke of York’s Theatre

Spring 2013 sees multi Oliver Award-winner Zoë Wanamaker make her triumphant return to the West End in Passion Play, Peter Nichols’ celebrated black comedy about love and adultery.

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 hidden desires and secret passions that lie beneath our everyday facades.   A glorious meeting of humour, eroticism and duplicity, this triumphant 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, Cyrano de Bergerac starring Kevin Kline and Through a Glass Darkly starring Carey Mulligan) with Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter, BBC1’s My Family and most recently seen on stage in All My Sons and National Theatres’ The Cherry Orchard) for the first time since their award-winning collaboration in Electra (Donmar Warehouse).
