Samantha Spiro to replace Allan Corduner in The Most Precious of Goods at Marylebone Theatre

A new stage adaptation of Jean-Claude Grumberg’s best-selling French language novella The Most Precious of Goods has announced that Olivier Award-winner Samantha Spiro is set to join the production.

Samantha Spiro will replace previously announced star Allan Corduner (The Motive and the Cue, Tár, Topsy-Turvy), who has had to withdraw from the production as he recovers from pneumonia.

Samantha Spiro is a two-time Olivier Award-winner actor, whose stage credits include Merrily We Roll Along and Hello, Dolly! Her extensive screen work includes new movie One Life with Anthony Hopkins and Netflix’s Sex Education.

The production will also feature a live score performed by acclaimed cellist Gemma Rosefield.

Directed and translated by Nicolas Kent, the play will run at the Marylebone Theatre from 22 January to 3 February 2024, to coincide with National Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January 2024.

Joining Kent in the creative team are: Design by Carly Brownbridge, Projected Photography by Judy Goldhill and Lighting by Matt Eagland.

The story is set in Winter 1943, in a forest in war-torn Eastern Europe. A poor woodcutter’s wife finds a little bundle thrown into the snow from a moving goods’ train, and it contains something for which she has always yearned, but…

Told with a fairy tale-like lyricism, the play is billed as a gripping story of love and hope, set against the terrible backdrop of the Holocaust.
