The Height of the Storm£54.00
Two of the greatest British actors of their generation appear on stage together for the very first time. This UK premiere production, which opens in Bath immediately prior to the West End, is a searing exploration of love, compassion and the fragility of life.
The Height of the Storm is a beautifully compelling family drama by Florian Zeller, “the most exciting playwright of our time” (Guardian). His Olivier award-winning play The Father, produced by Theatre Royal Bath Productions, opened in Bath before becoming one of the outstanding West End and Broadway hits of recent years.
Starring Jonathan Pryce and Dame Eileen Atkins.
The play is about a couple, André and Madeleine, who have been in love for over 50 years. They are expecting a visit from heir daughters, when a bunch of flowers is delivered, and the couple receive an unexpected visit from a woman from the past.
Jonathan Pryce is best-known for his stage work in productions such as the Royal Court’s Hamlet in 1980, which won him the Olivier Award for Best Actor. His other stage roles include The Engineer in the original 1989 production of Miss Saigon, Fagin in the 1984 revival of Oliver and Professor Higgins in My Fair Lady in 2001. More recently, he’s appeared in King Lear at the Almeida in 2012, and the Shakespeare’s Globe production of The Merchant of Venice in 2015.
Eileen Atkins’ stage work includes the Old Vic’s 1978 production of Twelfth Night, Passion Play at the Aldwych in 1981, An Unexpected Man in London and Off-Broadway in 1998 and Honour at the National Theatre in 2003.
