Why See The Height of the Storm?

PlaysCritics PicksStars on Stage

From the writer of the Father

Theatre greats Jonathan Pryce and Dame Eileen Atkins are joining each other on stage for the first time in celebrated playwright Florian Zeller's newest outing. In this intriguing drama, Pryce and Atkins play Andre and Madeleine, a loved-up couple awaiting a visit from their daughters. As mysterious objects, and persons, begin to arrive, things start to unravel and questions start to circulate around the family, including for Andre, who is beginning to feel he isn't really there at all...

Two legends for one!

The Height of the Storm sees these two icons of stage and screen treading the boards for the first time together.
Recognisable to audiences all over the globe for his film work (Brazil, the Pirates of the Caribbean series) Jonathan Price is most often found in the West End, where his oeuvre has included everything from Miss Saigon to The Merchant of Venice.

With three Oliviers (plus a BAFTA an Emmy for good measure) Dame Eileen Atkins is a national treasure, her unmistakable voice and twinkling eye an asset to any production. Her credits are too numerous to name, but most recently, she's been delighting as Queen Mary on The Crown.

What we thought

captivating CHALLENGING Emotional

An excellent piece of drama where the audience's experience is more important than telling a story

French playwright Florian Zeller delivers another emotional - and cryptic - snapshot-of-life with The Height of the Storm. In much the same vein as The Father, the audience is thrust into the lived experience of the characters.
