THE LAST CIGARETTE/HAY FEVER ET. AL.
at the Chichester Festival Theater

LOOKING GOOD
By JOHN NATHAN
Published January 26 2009


Chichester Festival Theatre has announced that the venue' early "Festival 09" productions will feature the stage adaptation of the late Simon Gray's memoirs.

Co-adapted by Gray, who died last year, and Hugh Whitemore , The Last Cigarette will star Felicity Kendal, Nicholas Le Prevost and Jasper Britton in a production helmed by former National Theatre artistic director Richard Eyre.

The production kicks off Chichester's season at the Minerva Theatre on March 11 and is scheduled to run for one month.

Meanwhile, Diana Rigg is set to return to the Chichester Festival Theatre from April 9 as Judith Bliss in a Nikolai Foster-directed revival of Noel Coward's Hay Fever, with Simon William's taking on the role of David Bliss.

In May the pairing of Ronald Harwood's Taking Sides and Collaboration will return to the Minerva.

As revealed by TNO, the two plays about the moral choices taken by German artists during the Second World War and which star Michael Pennington as Wilhelm Furtswangler and Richard Strauss respectively, will then transfer for a West End run. Venue and dates for the transfer are as yet unknown.
