Robert Lindsay & Claire Skinner in Prism

First look at Robert Lindsay and Claire Skinner as they rehearse Prism at Hampstead Theatre.

Terry Johnson’s (La Cage aux Folles) new play is based on the life of Oscar winning British Cinematographer Jack Cardiff, best known for his work with Powell and Pressburger, John Huston and Alfred Hitchcock on films such as A Matter of Life and Death (1946), Black Narcissus (1947), The Red Shoes (1948), Under Capricorn (1949), The African Queen (1951) and The Prince and the Showgirl (1957).

Much loved actor Robert Lindsay (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, My Family) plays legendary cinematographer Jack Cardiff, who long since retired is struggling to write his autobiography; much preferring to live in the past than write about it.

Lindsay is joined by Claire Skinner best known for playing Sue Brockman from the BBC television series Outnumbered, Barnaby Kay (A Streetcar Named Desire) and Rebecca Knight (The Importance of Being Earnest).

Prism is written and directed by Terry Johnson with design by Tim Shortall, lighting by Ben Ormerod and sound by John Leonard.

Prism opens on 14 September 2017 running until 14 October 2017, with previews from 6 September 2017 at Hampstead Theatre, London.
