Elegy London - Nick Payne Brings Latest Production to the Donmar Warehouse
After winning the George Devine award in 2009 for his first play If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, Nick Payne has gone to be applauded by numerous theatre critics for his follow-ups Wanderlust in 2010, Constellations in 2012, 2013's The Same Deep Water As Me, along with Blurred Lines and Incognito the following year. Many of his creations explore the boundaries dividing science, love and humanity, and his latest, running at the Donmar Warehouse from April, takes it one step further in looking at the consequences associated with potential eternal life.
The double Olivier Award winner Zoe Wanamaker leads the cast as one of three women who make the difficult choice between love and eternal life, alongside Barbara Flynn and Nina Sosanya. All three actresses have put on outstanding performances at the London venue before and audiences cannot wait to see what they bring to this fantastic production. With an incredible knack for transferring his deep and passionate understanding for science into a gripping, edge-of-your-seat drama, Nick Payne's modern masterpieces are not to be missed.
