About Summer and Smoke

The Almeida Theatre's intensely atmospheric production of Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke transfers to the West End in late 2018, with Patsy Ferran and Matthew Needham reprising their central roles in Rebecca Frecknall's production.

Williams' play is set in Mississippi and centres on a minister's daughter named Alma, who finds herself entangled in an impassioned and complicated relationship with John Buchanan, an unruly young doctor and her next door neighbour.

Produced by the Almeida and Sonia Friedman Productions, Summer and Smoke transfers to the Duke of York's Theatre from 10th November to 19th January, with tickets now on sale. 

Following its initial sell-out run at the Almeida, the production received critical praise across the board, with many paying tribute to Ferran's performance in the central role, with LondonTheatre.co.uk hailing her performance as a memorable one which 'demonstrates she is going from strength to strength'.

Williams finished writing Summer and Smoke in 1948, although it was almost 60 years until it was first produced in London. The play received its West End premiere in 2006 at the Apollo Theatre. Directed by Adrian Noble, and starring Rosamund Pike and Chris Carmack, the play cut its 16-week run short by 10 weeks, owing to poor ticket sales.

This differs, however, from Frecknall's superlative Almeida production, or which advance tickets sold out. This musical take on the play features a number of songs with a Southern twang, akin to Bob Dylan's Girl from the North Country, and sees a set littered with upright pianos.  

Summer and Smoke tickets are on sale now.
