Following in the footsteps of its run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Florian Zeller’s The Truth now sets its sights on the West End as it takes to the stage of the Wyndham’s Theatre from June. With the recent staging of The Father in the West End, it is a good time to be a fan of Zeller’s work.
This is partly thanks to writer Christopher Hampton, who offers up this adaptation of the show, presenting it to English Language audiences here in the capital, allowing them the opportunity to experience this story of friendship and relationships (he also brought us mentioned production of The Father). Lindsay Posner will direct, building on the wealth of high profile shows that he has already helmed over an impressive career.
The show follows a love triangle, with Alice and Paul married to one another, but Alice indulging in an affair with Paul’s best friend Michel. With betrayal and deceit at play, there could be plenty of consequences as Alice delves into her extramarital affair.
Hampton has a history of adapting the work of Zeller and in recent years garnered a lot of attention for The Father with Kenneth Cranham. But with The Truth he brought a compelling story of the truth to the Menier Chocolate Factory in Southwark, leading to this well-deserved transfer to the West End.
And who better to present it that Lindsay Posner? He is perhaps one of the biggest names in the capital and has been responsible for many of its big hits in recent years. This year he also directs Matthew Perry in The End Of Longing at the Playhouse Theatre, whilst other credits include The Turn Of The Screw at the Almeida Theatre and Uncle Vanya at the Vaudeville Theatre.
Following its previous run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, The Truth now plays at the West End’s Wyndham’s Theatre from Wednesday 22nd June 2016.
