Summer and SmokeFollowing a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre, Rebecca Frecknall's "shiveringly beautiful production" (The Sunday Times) of Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke transfers to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre. Patsy Ferran won over the critics - "a genuine marvel" (Independent)- as Alma and Matthew Needham, who "fires up the stage" (The Times), returns as John in this "unmissable Tennessee Williams revival" (The Telegraph). Trapped between desire and a life of obligation, Alma meets John and her world turns upside down. This emotionally wrought drama explores the complex nature of body and soul, religion and indulgence versus sacrifice.

About Duke of York's Theatre

This West End theatre has more than its share of name changes. Originally called The Trafalgar in 1894, it became the Duke of York's to honour the future King George V. During the late 1990s, the name was temporarily changed to The Royal Court Theatre. More about Duke of York's Theatre
