Following an acclaimed run at the Almeida Theatre, it has been announced that Rebecca Frecknall’s production of Summer and Smoke will transfer to the Duke of York’s Theatre from the 10th November.
Trapped between desire and a life of obligation, Alma meets John and her world turns upside down. This intoxicating classic about love, loneliness and self-destruction evokes the simmering passions of a sweltering summer in small-town Mississippi.
Written by Tennessee Williams, this rarely seen play will transfer to the Duke of York’s Theatre for a strictly limited season from the 10th November until the 19th January 2019, with the full cast from the Almeida run transferring along with the production.
The cast for the production includes: Seb Carrington, Nancy Crane, Patsy Ferran, Eric MacLennan, Forbes Masson, Matthew Needham, Tok Stephen and Anjana Vasan.
As well as Rebecca Frecknall, the creative team behind the production also includes: designs by Tom Scutt, lighting by Lee Curran, sound by Carolyn Downing, composition by Angus MacRae and casting by Julia Horan. The West End transfer is produced by the Almeida Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions.
Tickets are priced from £15 (£10 in previews) and 25% of all tickets for the West End transfer of Summer & Smoke will be accessibly priced at £25 and under. This includes a special allocation of tickets per performance made exclusively available for young people (aged 25s and under).
