Helena Bonham Carter and Nigel Harman were among the guests at the press night for Passion Play at the Duke of York's Theatre.

The play, last seen in the West End in 2000, charts the collapse of a 25-year of marriage as a successful man still in love with his wife is attracted to a younger and sexually voracious woman whose temptations he's unable to resist. As trust collapses, husband and wife Eleanor and James are left floundering and exposed.

The cast features Owen Teale, Samantha Bond, Oliver Cotton, Annabel Scholey, Sian Thomas and Zoe Wanamaker.

Other guests in attendance last night included the play's writer Peter Nichols, as well as Hayley Mills, Les Dennis, Robert Bathurst, Bernice Stegers, Claire Sweeney, Katherine Kingsley, Jenny Eclair, Alexander Hanson and Gawn Grainger.

Passion Play runs until 3 August 2013.
