Why See The Greatest Play in the History of the World?

Plays

Starring Julie Hesmondhalgh

British TV legend Julie Hesmondhalgh (Coronation Street, Broadchurch) is stepping onto the London stage this November as she stars in The Greatest Play in the History of the World. Written by Ian Kershaw (who happens to be Hesmondhalgh's husband) The Greatest Play is a beautiful love story, perfect for the festive season!

Debuting at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017, The Greatest Play garnered critical acclaim for its touching portrayal of everyday love and Hesmondhalgh's flawless performance, for which she earned The Stage Edinburgh Award. Be swept away with The Greatest Play in the History of the World in the aptly deserved London premiere. 

What is The Greatest Play in the History of World about?

The world has stopped. One man awakes in the middle of the night to find no sign of life, that is until he opens his bedroom curtains and notices one single light in the house opposite, and one woman staring back at him.
