The Height of the Storm at the Wyndham’s Theatre

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Jonathan Pryce and Eileen Atkins star in the West End premiere of The Height of the Storm, a beautifully compelling family drama by Florian Zeller, the most exciting playwright of our time The Guardian.

Starring two of the greatest actors of their generation on stage together for the first time, this major new play from the writer of Olivier Award-Winning The Father is a searing exploration of love, family and the fragility of life.

The Height of the Storm runs from 2 October 2018 until 1 December 2018 at the Wyndham’s Theatre.


André and Madeleine have been in love for over fifty years. This weekend, as their daughters visit, something feels unusual. A bunch of flowers arrives, but who sent them? A woman from the past turns up, but who is she? And why does André feel like he isn’t there at all?


The cast features Jonathan Pryce (Glengarry Glen Ross, Evita, Miss Saigon, Game of Thrones) and Dame Eileen Atkins (Cranford, Gosford Park, The Crown), Amanda Drew, Anna Madeley, James Hillier and Lucy Cohu.


Play by Florian Zeller, translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by Jonathan Kent.
