Two Ladies Play in London Bridge

The latest play on at the Bridge Theatre is Two Ladies, whose cast includes award-winning stage and screen actor Zoë Wanamaker who is re-united with director Nicholas Hytner for her Bridge debut and Zrinka Cvitešić who returns to the London stage after her Olivier award-winning performance in Once. As their husbands clash over an international crisis, the first ladies of France and America find themselves alone together in a side room. Friends, or enemies? When the stakes are so high, can they trust each other? And can they trust their husbands?

‘Master Harold’…and the boys on Southbank

Tony Award-winning playwright Athol Fugard’s semi-autobiographical and blistering masterwork explores the nature of friendship, and the ways people are capable of hurting even those they love. ‘Master Harold’ and the boys is set in 1950’s Apartheid South Africa and follows the unlikely friendship between employees Sam and Willie and Hally, Master Harold.
