Passion Play description
Passion Play tickets – Enjoy rich, witty black comedy, created for adults
Perfect for adults who love their comedy rich, sharp and dark, Passion Play takes an intimate
look into the living, breathing guts of a marriage… then stirs them into a dramatic, relationship-
It’s a familiar story, a timeless tale of betrayal and desire. From the outside they look like the
perfect couple. They’ve been together for twenty five years. They’ve rubbed the sharp edges off
one another and they feel comfortable. They’re set to sail peacefully into an uneventful middle aged
sunset. Then something happens and things start to unravel.
Meet art dealer James and Eleanor, his wife. Things are trundling along nicely until James falls madly
and passionately in love with the couple’s much younger friend, the recently-widowed Kate. Eleanor
soon finds out and things go downhill fast. James tells Eleanor he’s given Kate up but they still meet
secretly. Lies breed yet more lies as the unhappy couple reveal their secret desires, dreams and
inner feelings until their entire marriage is stripped bare.
