About The Greatest Play…

A man wakes in the middle of the night to discover that the world has stopped.

Through the crack in his bedroom curtains he can see no signs of life at all...other than a light in the house opposite where a woman in an over-sized Bowie T-shirt stands, looking back at him.

Starring 2018 BAFTA nominee Julie Hesmondhalgh (Coronation Street, Broadchurch), The Greatest Play... is squashed full of exquisite observation and heartbreaking beauty.

Following a sell-out run at Traverse Theatre at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018, where Hesmondhalgh was the winner of The Stage Edinburgh Award, The Greatest Play… transfers to Trafalgar Studios for six weeks only.

The production was originally produced in association with the Royal Exchange, Manchester.
