Jemma returns to Hampstead, where she was last seen in Farewell to the Theatre, to play Professor George Grey a brilliant behavioural biologist world-renowned for her pioneering research into octopus intelligence.

Recently seen on stage in Much Ado About Nothing (National Theatre), The Comedy of Errors and A Christmas Carol (both Citizens Theatre, Glasgow) and on screen in ITV’s Crime, Ewan Miller makes his debut at Hampstead playing Harry, the ambitious anthropologist.
