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 intimatelook into the living, breathing guts of a marriage… then stirs them into a dramatic, relationship-threatening crisis.

It’s a familiar story, a timeless tale of betrayal and desire. From the outside they look like theperfect couple. They’ve been together for twenty five years. They’ve rubbed the sharp edges offone another and they feel comfortable. They’re set to sail peacefully into an uneventful middle agedsunset. Then something happens and things start to unravel.

Meet art dealer James and Eleanor, his wife. Things are trundling along nicely until James falls madlyand passionately in love with the couple’s much younger friend, the recently-widowed Kate. Eleanorsoon finds out and things go downhill fast. James tells Eleanor he’s given Kate up but they still meetsecretly. Lies breed yet more lies as the unhappy couple reveal their secret desires, dreams andinner feelings until their entire marriage is stripped bare.
