Former CASUALTY actor Matthew Needham can currently be seen in a theatre production of ‘Summer and Smoke’.
Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at the Almeida, Rebecca Frecknall’s “shiveringly beautiful production” (The Sunday Times) of Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke transfers to the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.
Trapped between desire and a life of obligation, Alma meets John and her world turns upside down. With “spellbinding, stripped-back staging” (Financial Times), this intoxicating classic about love, loneliness and self-destruction evokes the simmering passions of a sweltering summer in small-town Mississippi. “Patsy Ferran is a genuine marvel” as Alma (Independent) and Matthew Needham ’fires up the stage’ (Times) as John in this ‘unmissable Tennessee Williams revival’ (The Telegraph).
The play runs from 10th November – 19th January at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London.
