Casting for the revival of Joanna Murray-Smith’s play has been confirmed.
Playing at the Park Theatre from the 25th October, the cast for Paul Robinson’s production is set to include Henry Goodman, Imogen Stubbs and Katie Brayben.
For Honour and George, the arrival of the self-assured Claudia threatens to wreck a 32-year marriage. But as the power balance starts to shift, the husband, wife, daughter and lover together must face the fundamental question – what is love?
Having originated in Australia, Joanna Murray-Smith’s play debuted in the UK at the National Theatre in 2003, before a 2006 West End revival at Wyndham’s Theatre.
Staged in the round, this new revival will include designs by Liz Cooke, lighting by Sally Ferguson and sound by Simon Slater.

Imogen Stubbs has recently appeared on stage in productions of: Things I Know To Be True (Frantic Assembly), Communicating Doors (Menier Chocolate Factory), Elephants(Hampstead Theatre), Alecky Blythe’s Little Revolution (Almeida) and Strangers On A Train (Gielgud).
