The Hampstead Theatre have announced that 'Divergent' star Theo James will make his professional stage debut opposite Emilia Fox in the UK premiere of Laura Eason’s Sex with Strangers at the Hampstead Theatre's main house which runs from 2 February to 4 March 2017.

Directed by Peter DuBois, this new play is described as a multifaceted love story packed with hidden ambitions, soaring desires and secret agendas.

"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…"

Emilia Fox's credits includes Rapture Blister Burn (Hampstead Theatre), Coriolanus, Richard II (Almeida Theatre), Good (Donmar Warehouse), Katherine Howard (Chichester Festival Theatre) and The Cherry Orchard (RSC & Albery Theatre).

Theo James's film credits include 'War on Everyone', 'The Benefactor', and 'You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger'. On TV he has starred in 'Divergent', 'Downton Abbey' and 'Bedlam'.

Tickets for the production are now on sale.
