Florian Zeller's piece, which opens at the Richmond Theatre before touring to Cambridge and Bath ahead of a West End run at Wyndham's Theatre, follows a couple who reflect on their lives together and what their love means.


The piece, translated by Christopher Hampton (who has translated a number of Zeller's works), stars Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones, Brazil) and Eileen Atkins (The Crown, Gosford Park) with the rest of the cast composed of James Hillier, Lucy Cohu, Anna Madeley and Amanda Drew. It is directed by Jonathan Kent, with design by Anthony Ward, lighting by Hugh Vanstone and sound by Paul Groothuis.
