Summer and Smoke Tickets
Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke tickets are available now to the London's Duke of York’s Theatre transfer!
Following a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Almeida Theatre Rebecca Frecknall’s Summer and Smoke is transferring to London’s Duke of York’s Theatre. Star Patsy Ferran and the entire cast of the Almeida run are reprising their roles for the Tennessee Williams revival.
“The girl who said 'no', — she doesn't exist any more, she died last summer — suffocated in smoke from something on fire inside her.”
High strung, refined to a fault Alma begins to questions everything she thought she stood over the course of a Mississippi summer spent with the wild and irreverent Doctor John Buchanan who grew up next door.
Running at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London's West End from November 2018 to February 2019, tickets for this production are sure to be in high demand.

London Theatre Review: Summer and Smoke at the Duke of York's Theatre
In Summer and Smoke, we enter the familiar landscape of Tennessee Williams, scarred with individuals damaged by dysfunctional families. Now running at the Duke of York's Theatre, this play’s staging and direction are quite innovative. We are presented with a semi-circle of upright pianos, which are played by actors variously either with their backs to the audience or by moving around the instruments, thereby creating and developing the mood for the show. The lead actors sometimes face the audience directly whilst addressing each other. Perhaps this symbolises the disconnection between the characters.
