  • Following the Almeida Theatre’s critically acclaimed, sold-out run, Sonia Friedman Productions transfers Rebecca Frecknall’s ‘shiveringly beautiful production’ (The Sunday Times) of Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke to the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.

    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.  ‘Patsy Ferran is a genuine marvel’ as Alma (Independent) and Matthew Needham ’fires up the stage’ (The Times) as John in this ‘unmissable Tennessee Williams revival’ (The Telegraph).

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

    Coming to the Duke of York's Theatre for a strictly limited season, book your Summer and Smoke tickets today!
