The Donmar Warehouse today releases rehearsal images for Belleville by Amy Herzog and directed by Michael Longhurst.
Americans Zack and Abby are bright, young and recently married. He’s a doctor combating infant disease. She’s an actress, also teaching yoga. It’s just before Christmas and they’re living the expat highlife in bohemian Belleville, Paris.
It’s all a little too perfect.
Writer Amy Herzog is ‘one of the brightest new talents in the theater’ (New York Times). Her acclaimed play about a romantic dream gone sour receives its UK premiere. Michael Longhurst (Amadeus, National Theatre; Constellations, Royal Court, West End and Broadway) directs at the Donmar for the first time.
Cast includes Faith Alabi (The Rolling Stone, Orange Tree Theatre), Malachi Kirby (Rough Cuts, Royal Court), James Norton (Bug, Found 111, The Lion in Winter, Haymarket; TV includes Grantchester, War & Peace, Happy Valley; Film includes Flatliners) and Imogen Poots (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Harold Pinter Theatre).
