Tickets to Anna Ziegler's Actually play at Trafalgar Studios 2 available now!

Tickets to the upcoming West End premiere of Anna Ziegler's play, Actually, are on sale now. Having received its co-world premiere in 2017 at The Geffen Playhouse Theatre in Los Angeles, the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts, and the Manhattan Theatre Club, the Actually play is set to transfer to the West End's Trafalgar Studios this summer for a strictly limited, one-month engagement.

What is Anna Ziegler's Actually play about?

Tom and Amber are just two students at the same Ivy League university hoping to put the textbooks aside and let loose. When the two meet at a rager, they end up having a one night stand. There's no doubt in their minds that they were attracted to each other and they can't deny they agreed to drink alcohol. But what actually happened between them at the party?

Anna Ziegler's 2017 play, Actually, dares to explore both dark and intense subject matter ranging from the validity of sexual consent, the complications that arise when both gender and race politics collide, and society's overwhelming desire to be one with the crowd. Perhaps there is not two, but actually three sides to every story.

Actually is a provocative tale that takes place on one night between two people with three truths. If you enjoyed Nina Raine's hit play Consent last year at the Harold Pinter Theatre, you'll certainly be mesmerised with this year's Actually at London's Trafalgar Studios.

About Actually playwright Anna Ziegler

Anna Ziegler is an American playwright hailing from Brooklyn, New York. She studied English at Yale University, an Ivy League School, before earning a master's degree in poetry at the University of East Anglia and an MFA in dramatic writing at New York University. Ziegler is no stranger to London's West End. Her 2008 debut play, Photograph 51, was staged at the Noel Coward Theatre in 2015 and starred Nicole Kidman as Rosalind Franklin. The smash-hit play earned Kidman an Evening Standard Award for Best Actress and Anna Ziegler a WhatsOnStage Award for Best New Play in 2016, thereby solidifying Ziegler's career as a serious playwright on the English-speaking theatre scene.

Other notable plays penned by Ziegler include 2015's Boy,  which was nominated for a 2016 Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award, 2011's Another Way Home, 2015's A Delicate Ship, 2007's BFF, and 2015's The Last Match. Given Ziegler's recent track record as one of the hottest new playwrights, you certainly won't want to miss the London premiere of Actually this August!

FC Kroese31st August

Simon Mark bennett30th August

An amazing, powerful production!! Left with a lot to ponder!

Customer25th August

Interesting real-world scenario of Anglo Saxon alcohol fuelled student relationships, with realistic nuances.

Simon Williams25th August

A very well written play acted with passion that explores many of the multi faceted social and societal aspects of human interactions especially how communications are skewed by inter and intra expectations of race, gender, religion, structural (ie university policies and procedures) and social and sexual intercourse. Who understands what and why and the consequences there of.

Charles25th August

Beautifully written play - realistic scenario, delivered with poise, humour and balance. Both actors were thoroughly convincing and compelling. I thought it was truly excellent, and have already recommended it to others.

P Toeman24th August

Well crafted production and excellent performance of exceptional piece of modern writing.

Ms Gallivan23rd August

Really enjoyed this play, both actors gave such a heart felt performance on such a difficult theme. I especially enjoyed the intimacy of the performance venue as it perfectly suited both the theme and the actors. A very enjoyable evening.

caroline page23rd August

Really didn’t like it sadly as I did have high hopes. The audience directed monologues became boring to listen to and I noticed at least 6 members of the audience asleep. The female lead spoke too quickly for everything she said to be heard clearly and I didn’t believe in her character at all. The subject idea was clever but I feel it would have benefited from being cut to an hour. I’m an avid theatre goer but sadly wouldn’t recommend this particular production.

frank robertson22nd August

I thought it was very well done the acting was quality i felt a little ambivalent about what had actually (?) transpired, but perhaps i was meant to

Nancy Koeppel20th August

Great acting and left me with lots to think about.

Mrs Dorothy Cook19th August
