The Height Of The Storm Tickets

Wyndhams Theatre, London, WC2H 0DA
  • Jonathan Pryce and Dame Eileen Atkins star in The Height of the Storm, a beautifully compelling family drama by Florian Zeller, “the most exciting playwright of our time” (The Guardian).

    Starring two of the greatest actors of their generation on stage together for the first time, this major new play from the writer of Olivier Award-Winning The Father is a searing exploration of love, family and the fragility of life. Translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by Jonathan Kent.

    André and Madeleine have been in love for over fifty years. This weekend, as their daughters visit, something feels unusual. A bunch of flowers arrives, but who sent them? A woman from the past turns up, but who is she? And why does André feel like he isn’t there at all?

    The cast also includes Amanda Drew (The Last Host, Trust, Broadchurch), Anna Madeley (Les Blancs, The Crucible). James Hillier (The Crown, Prime Suspect 1973) and Lucy Cohu, who won a BAFTA and Emmy for her portrayal of Princess Margaret in The Queen’s Sister, and an Emmy for Forgiven.
