Hampstead Theatre will host the world premieres of two plays as part of its Autumn season.
The first will be Prism, based on the life of legendary cinematographer Jack Cardiff, written and directed by Terry Johnson and will star Robert Lindsay and Claire Skinner.
This will be followed by the world premiere of Nicholas Wright’s The Slaves of Solitude, adapted from the acclaimed novel by Patrick Hamilton and will be directed by Jonathan Kent.
The first production of Simon Gray’s Cell Mates since 1995 will also be staged and directed by Artistic Director Edward Hall who comments, “I’m extremely proud to announce such an exciting body of work at Hampstead Theatre this autumn. With two world premieres on the Main Stage, Terry Johnson’s Prism and Nicholas Wright’s adaptation of The Slaves of Solitude, and a long overdue revival of Simon Gray’s Cell Mates, our aim is to continue to provide endless nights of top quality and entertaining theatre for hundreds of thousands of theatregoers. I’m personally looking forward to Gray’s gripping espionage thriller and I hope to help it gain its rightful place in the repertoire as a serious, brilliant piece of British drama.
Slaves of Solitude 20 October – 25 November
Cell Mates 30 November – 20 January
