Renowned stage actress, Elizabet, has suffered a psychological breakdown and relapsed into silence. She is sent with Sister Alma, the nurse assigned to her recovery, to a remote summer beach house. Can Alma coax Elizabet out of her silence? Truth, lies, manipulation and identity, PERSONA explores the meaning of ‘reality’.

The cast for the production includes Olivier Award winner Alice Krige, who returns to the London stage following two decades of working in Hollywood movies and on hit TV shows. She is joined on stage by Nobuhle Ketelo, Paul Schoolman and William Close.

The creative team for the production includes production design by BAFTA award winner Fotini Dimou and videographer Filip Haglund.

Persona continues to play at the Riverside Studios until the 23rd February.
