Summer and Smoke

Summer and Smoke

Synopsis

Following the Almeida Theatre’s critically acclaimed, sold-out run, Sonia Friedman Productions transfers Rebecca Frecknall’sshiveringly beautiful production’ (The Sunday Times) of Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke 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 (The Independent) and Matthew Needham ’fires up the stage’ (The Times) as John in this ‘unmissable Tennessee Williams revival’ (The Telegraph).

This innovative and ‘exquisite, poignant production’ (Financial Times) ‘announces Rebecca Frecknall as a director of real vision‘ (The Independent).

Please note this production features a gun shot and the smoking of real cigarettes.
