Summer and Smoke

Fresh off the back of its immense critical success at the Almeida Theatre, Rebecca Frecknall’s haunting production of Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smokewill now be completing an exclusive and limited run at the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre, and it is sure to be another sold-out show! This is easily one of the best theatre shows in London…

This innovative and ‘exquisite, poignant production’ (Financial Times) ‘announces ‘Frecknall as a director of real vision‘ (Independent).

★★★★★ ‘Rush to see this now, or live to regret it.’ - The Telegraph

★★★★★ ‘Patsy Ferran is a genuine marvel’ - Independent

★★★★★ ‘Needham fires up the stage, rambunctious and unruly’ - The Times

What is Summer and Smoke about?

It’s the classic story of girl meets boy with a sultry and gripping twist; Alma becomes torn between her deepest fears and her burning desires when she meets John, and thus begins her search for salvation from a life of obligation. Set in the scorching heat of a Mississippi summer, Frecknall’s take on Williams’ classic tale of love and self-devastation is as enthralling as it is sensual, demonstrating her formidable talent and innovative directorial vision. With outstanding performances from Patsy Ferran and Matthew Needham as the tale’s lustful lovers, this production is sure to smoulder on the Duke of York’s esteemed stage.
This poignant and mesmerising production is an unmissable adaptation of a captivating classic.
