Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at the Almeida, Rebecca Frecknall’s "shiveringly beautiful production" (The Sunday Times) of Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke transfers to the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.
Trapped between desire and a life of obligation, Alma meets John and her world turns upside down. With "spellbinding, stripped-back staging" (Financial Times), this intoxicating classic about love, loneliness and self-destruction evokes the simmering passions of a sweltering summer in small-town Mississippi. "Patsy Ferran is a genuine marvel" as Alma (Independent) and Matthew Needham ’fires up the stage’ (Times) as John in this ‘unmissable Tennessee Williams revival’ (The Telegraph).
Summer and Smoke in the West End is produced by the Almeida Theatre and Sonia Friedman productions.
