Sex with Strangers, The Hampstead Theatre

‘Look, I’m giving you another chance to show the world how talented you are. Take it. It’s worth the risk’

Olivia, an attractive and talented but underappreciated mid-career writer, is unexpectedly trapped overnight in a secluded, snowed-in B&B with Ethan, an equally attractive and wildly successful young blogger.

Her latest novel is an unsung masterpiece; his blog is being made into a movie. She prefers books; he prefers eBooks. She is anonymous; he has half a million Twitter followers. But opposites soon attract passionately as each realise they want more of what the other has. But the closer they get, the more they must confront the murky side of ambition, success and Wi-Fi…

Laura Eason’s smart comedy is a multifaceted love story packed with hidden ambitions, soaring desires and secret agendas.

Peter DuBois reunites with Emilia Fox following sell-out hit Rapture, Blister, Burn in 2014. His other directing credits include All New People (West End) and Becky Shaw (Almeida).

Emilia’s stage credits include Coriolanus and Richard II (both Almeida Theatre) and Good (Donmar) and her TV appearances include Silent Witness, Merlin and The Queen.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.
