SUMMARY

Following the successes of Far from the Madding Crowd, Eden End and The Real Thing, English Touring Theatre returns to the Playhouse with The Sacred Flame; W. Somerset Maugham’s deftly written exploration of love, devotion and family.

War hero Maurice Tabret returns home to his beautiful wife, Stella, and his loving family. But when tragedy strikes and foul play is raised, one question prevails; what lengths would you go to for love?

Part love story, part thriller, this fascinating and graceful play, by the enduringly popular playwright and novelist, is directed by Matthew Dunster whose previous credits include Mogadishu, as well as Love the Sinner for the National Theatre and Doctor Faustus for Shakespeare’s Globe.

Admission: £25(£18)
