Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at Islington's Almeida Theatre, Rebecca Frecknall's "shiveringly beautiful production" (The Sunday Times) of Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke transfers to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre for a strictly limited season from 10 November 2018 to 19 January 2019.
Summer and Smoke is a 1948 play by Tennessee Williams, originally titled 'Chart of Anatomy' when the playwright began working on it three years earlier.
Trapped between desire and a life of obligation, Alma meets John and her world turns upside down.
With 'spellbinding, stripped-back staging' (Financial Times), this intoxicating classic about love, loneliness and self-destruction evokes the simmering passions of a sweltering summer in small-town Mississippi.
