Ooh, it’s a theatre first! That’s rather exciting. Yes, it is! Jonathan Pryce is a two-time Olivier Award winner, with two more nominations under his belt. He’s a bit of a double threat – theatre and musical theatre alike. He’s been all over the film industry too – films like Evita with Madonna, Glengarry Glen Ross with Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin and Ed Harris, as well as the Pirates Of The Caribbean and Game Of Thrones franchises.
But Eileen Atkins pips him to the post with three Olivier Award wins, as well as four Tony Award nominations and both a BAFTA and an Emmy for her work in Cranford. Basically, this is a powerhouse of a theatrical couple.
The Height Of The Storm– sound pretty dramatic! That it does! It’s about a fifty-year loving marriage that all threatens to fall apart when André and Madeleine’s daughters come to visit. A mysterious bunch of flowers arrives on the doorstep and a woman emerges from their past. What links it all together? You’ll have to buy some tickets to find out!
The show is actually originally a French production by acclaimed playwright Florian Zeller. Zeller’s shows have been all over London in recent years – The Lie was at the Menier Chocolate Factory last autumn and both The Truth and The Father are Olivier Award nominated. The latter actually won Kenneth Cranham his first Olivier for Best Actor in 2015. It received five-star reviews from every major publication, an unprecedented feat!
The Height Of The Storm is translated by Christopher Hampton, who has translated many of Zeller’s works, and is directed by Jonathan Kent, most famous for being co-artistic director of the Almeida Theatre with renowned actor Ian McDiarmid. This is a pretty star-studded team!
