Book Afterplay Tickets at the Gielgud Theatre, London

About Afterplay

"Those superb actors, John Hurt and Penelope Wilton, are here caught up in a fascinating game of make-believe and after-life... it's a rivetting process in Robin Lefevre's heart-felt production" - The London Evening Standard

"A duet of the highest order, imbued with Chekhov but acquiring a poetic life of its own. And it is played to utter perfection by Wilton and Hurt" - The Daily Mail

John Hurt and Penelope Wilton star in the British Premiere of The Gate Theatre, Dublin, production of Afterplay, a new play by Brian Friel.

In Afterplay, Friel cleverly revisits the lives of two characters from Chekhov - Andrey Prozorov, the lackadaisical brother from The Three Sisters, and Sonya Serebriakova, from Uncle Vanya. It is the 1920s, twenty years after the events of the original plays, and the world has changed beyond recognition. In a Moscow cafe these two refugees from an earlier age meet for the first time.

A critically acclaimed sell-out run on its world premier at The Gate, Afterplay is directed by Robin Lefevre, designed by Liz Ascroft with lighting by Mick Hughes.
