First look at Emilia Fox and Theo James in Sex With Strangers

Laura Eason’s comedy premieres at Hampstead Theatre next month

Images have been released offering a first look at Emilia Fox and Theo James in rehearsals ahead of the UK premiere of Laura Eason's comedy, Sex with Strangers, at Hampstead Theatre next month.

Directed by Peter DuBois (Rapture, Blister, Burn), Divergent film star James makes his professional stage debut alongside Fox whose previous theatre credits include Richard II, Coriolanus (Almeida) and Rapture, Blister, Burn, also at the Hampstead venue.

Eason's play tells the story of Ethan (James), a successful blogger who gets trapped in a snowed-in B&B with under-appreciated writer Olivia (Fox).

Sex with Strangers runs at Hampstead Theatre between 2 February and 4 March, with previews from 27 January.
