The Duke of York’s Theatre prepares to welcome “Passion Play” to the stage in 2013 and in doing so it will not only be presenting a new opportunity to witness Peter Nichols’ 1981 play it will also be providing audiences with the chance of seeing Zoë Wanamaker perform under the direction of David Leveaux. This is certainly something that audiences will not want to miss out on and as it follows show like “Jumpy”, “Constellations” and “The Judas Kiss” at the West End venue it is clear that there are many good reasons to visit this part of town if you are looking for a high quality play.
In “Passion Play” those with theatre tickets will be introduced to James and Eleanor, who have been together for many years and seem to be a couple with a bright future and with no plans to upset the status quo. But sometimes matters take a different turn and with themes of Betrayal at play we witness what happens with James decides to meet with Kate, their recently widowed friend.
Nichols penned the play ahead of its 1981 premiere at the Aldwych Theatre. It would then go on to appear on Broadway and it arrives back in the West End for a new revival that is likely to turn many heads in the capital.
Wanamaker will likely prove to be a big draw for the revival as she is a highly respected actress of both the stage and the screen. She was last seen in the capital in “The Cherry Orchard” at the National Theatre in 2011 and before that she was also seen in Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons” at the Apollo Theatre. However, many that pick up theatre tickets to see the show will recognise her from television’s “My Family” in which she portrayed Susan Harper, as well as the “Harry Potter” series of movies. She has many award nominations to her name and as a result it is likely that critics and audiences alike are set for an awe-inspiring performance in the West End.
“Passion Play” with Zoë Wanamaker is set to land at the Duke of York’s Theatre on Tuesday 7th May 2013 following previews that begin on Wednesday 1st May 2013.
