‘James Norton and Imogen Poots bring fizzy chemistry’
‘A remarkable, urgent play… powerful viewing’
‘Terrifically tense; James Norton and Imogen Poots are brilliant’
Americans Zack and Abby are bright, young and recently married. He’s a doctor combating infant disease. She’s an actress, also teaching yoga. It’s just before Christmas and they’re living the expat highlife in bohemian Belleville, Paris.
It’s all a little too perfect.
Writer Amy Herzog is ‘one of the brightest new talents in the theater’ (New York Times). Her acclaimed play about a romantic dream gone sour receives its UK premiere. Michael Longhurst (Amadeus, National Theatre; Constellations, Royal Court, West End and Broadway) directs at the Donmar for the first time.
