Simon Gray's The Late Middle Classes received its long-awaited West End premiere at the Donmar Warehouse last night (1 June 2010, previews from 27 May).

The play centres on a young boy trapped between two types of oppressive love, which reveals the frustration, secrets and guilt of middle class respectability in 1950s England. Celia (Helen McCrory) is bored to distraction; Charles (Peter Sullivan) is obsessed with his work; and their son is having his first lessons in music and in life.
