Florian Zeller’s latest play The Height of the Storm is a compelling family drama revolving around André and Madeleine, a married couple of fifty years. The play takes place during one weekend on which their daughters visit. But the weekend takes a suspicious turn when a bunch of flowers, and a woman from the past, turn up.

Zeller’s previous work includes the Olivier Award-winning The Father, and more recently The Lie at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Jonathan Kent directs Christopher Hampton’s translation of this latest work, which will star Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins.

Jonathan Pryce is best-known for his stage work in productions such as the Royal Court’s Hamlet in 1980, which won him the Olivier Award for Best Actor. His other stage roles include The Engineer in the original 1989 production of Miss Saigon, Fagin in the 1984 revival of Oliver and Professor Higgins in My Fair Lady in 2001. More recently, he’s appeared in King Lear at the Almeida in 2012, and the Shakespeare’s Globe production ofThe Merchant of Venice in 2015.

Eileen Atkins’ stage work includes the Old Vic’s 1978 production of Twelfth NightPassion Play at the Aldwych in 1981, An Unexpected Man in London and Off-Broadway in 1998 and Honour at the National Theatre in 2003.

New Florian Zeller play to star Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins in the West End
Friday, February 9, 2018

A new play by Florian Zeller is set to premiere in the West End, starring Jonathan Pryce and Dame Eileen Atkins. The Height of the Storm has been translated by Christopher Hampton, much like his other plays, like the Olivier Award-winning The Father, and more recently The Lie at the Menier Chocolate Factory. The play is about a couple, André and Madeleine, who have been in love for over 50 years. They are expecting a visit from heir daughters, when a bunch of flowers is delivered, and the couple receive an unexpected visit from a woman from the past.
