Bill Nighy (Living) and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) feature in this captivating play where ideologies and passion collide.

When schoolteacher Kyra receives an unexpected visit from her former lover Tom, sparks begin to fly as they rekindle their romance. Whilst passion for one another may once have been enough, the pair now must overcome some serious conflicts of opinion.

Written by David Hare (Straight Line Crazy) and directed by Stephen Daldry (The Audience), with Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game) in the supporting cast.

Filmed live from Wyndham’s Theatre in London.


‘Carey Mulligan gives a performance of extraordinarily contained power’

‘Bill Nighy is a case study in charisma in this fine revival’

‘Thrillingly revived by Stephen Daldry in a knockout production’

‘Moving picture of politics and love’

‘David Hare’s prickly, intelligent mid-Nineties play is full of guts and heart’
