EXTRA PREVIEW ADDED FOR JUDI DENCH / MAGGIE SMITH PLAY
An extra preview date, 3 Oct 02, has been added for David Hare's new play The Breath of Life , starring Judi Dench and Maggie Smith.
Tickets for this performance are priced at half-price and are only available to people who buy them in person at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket.
This is a great bonus for fans who have been unable to get tickets to this sold-out show, which has its press night on 15 Oct 02, following previews from 3 Oct 02.
Directed by Howard Davies and designed by William Dudley, it is a tale of two women whose lives are interwoven in ways neither of them yet understand. Madeleine Palmer (MAGGIE SMITH) is a retired curator, living alone on the Isle of Wight. One day to her door comes Angela Beale (JUDI DENCH), a popular novelist whom she has met only once before. The progress of a single night comes to echo the hidden course of their lives.
