"When we see a gold ring on someone’s hand and we want, we don’t take it, do we?"

For Honor and George, the arrival of the self-assured Claudia threatens to wreck a 32-year marriage. But as the power balance starts to shift, the husband, wife, daughter and lover together must face the fundamental question - what is love?

Staged in the round, with double Olivier Award-winner Henry Goodman as George (Merchant Of Venice, National Theatre and BBC/HBO), actress and writer Imogen Stubbs as Honor (Little Revolution, Almeida Theatre), Olivier Award-winner Katie Brayben as Claudia (Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, Aldwych Theatre) and Natalie Simpson as Sophie (Boudica, Shakespeare’s Globe).

Often compared to David Hare’s Skylight and Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, Honour paints an unflinching portrait of what happens when a secure marriage suddenly stalls, and when the opportunity arises for one life to be revived at the expense of another. Don’t miss this poignant and gripping revival!
