Almeida Theatre’s ‘Summer and Smoke’ announces West End transfer

Following a sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre earlier this year, the Almeida’s critically-acclaimed production of Tennessee Williams’ intoxicating and rarely staged classic, Summer and Smoke, will transfer to the Duke Of York’s Theatre for a strictly limited season from 10 November 2018 to 19 January 2019.

Directed by the Almeida’s Associate Director Rebecca Frecknall, the transfer will see the full original cast reprise their roles for the West End run.

The full cast includes: Seb Carrington, Nancy Crane, Patsy Ferran, Eric MacLennan, Forbes Masson, Matthew Needham, Tok Stephen and Anjana Vasan.

The girl who said ‘no’ – she doesn’t exist anymore, she died last summer – suffocated in smoke from something on fire inside her.

Trapped between desire and a life of obligation, Alma meets John and her world turns upside down. 

Summer and Smoke is designed by Tom Scutt, with lighting by Lee Curran, sound by Carolyn Downing, composition by Angus MacRae and casting by Julia Horan.

The West End transfer of Summer and Smoke is produced by the Almeida Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions.
