The Height of the Storm

Florian Zeller's new play The Height of the Storm in London starring Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins

André and Madeleine have been in love for over fifty years. This weekend, as their daughters visit, something feels unusual. A bunch of flowers arrives, but who sent them? A woman from the past turns up, but who is she? And why does André feel like he isn't there at all?

The cast features Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins. Directed by Jonathan Kent. Adapted and translated by Christopher Hampton.

Florian Zeller's other West End plays include The Truth seen at the Wyndham's Theatre in 2016, and The Father which was seen at the Wyndham's Theatre in 2015 and at the Duke of York's Theatre in 2016 - both of these plays where translated and adapted by Christopher Hampton.

Jonathan Pryce's London stage credits include the title role in Michael Attenborough's revival of Shakespeare's King Lear at the Almeida Theatre in 2012; the role of 'Davies' in Christopher Morahan's revival of Harold Pinter's The Caretaker at the Trafalgar Studios in 2010; the role of 'Shelly Levene' in James Macdonald's revival of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross at the Apollo Theatre in 2007; the role of 'Martin' in Anthony Page's production of Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? Apollo Theatre in 2004; the role of 'Professor Henry Higgins' in Trevor Nunn's revival of the Lerner and Lowe musical My Fair Lady at the National Theatre in 2001; the title role in Adrian Noble's revival of Shakespeare's Macbeth for the Royal Shakespeare Company, at the Barbican Theatre in 1987; and the role of 'Mick' in Kenneth Ives revival of Harold Pinter's The Caretaker, for the National Theatre's Lyttelton Theatre in 1980.

Eileen Atkins' West End theatre credits include the role of 'Margot' in Roger Michell's production of Joanna Murray-Smith's The Female Of The Species at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2008; the role of 'Louise Rafi' in Jonathan Kent's revival of Edward Bond's The Sea at the Haymarket Theatre in 2008; the role of 'Meg' in Lindsay Posner's revival of Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party at the Duchess Theatre in 2005; the role of 'Virginia Woolf' in her own play Vita and Virginia, directed by Patrick Garland, at the Ambassadors Theatre in 1993; and the title role in John Dove's revival of George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan at the Old Vic Theatre in 1977.
