Visit From An Unknown Woman Tickets – Hampstead Theatre

“There’s this monstrous idiot – this monstrous elected idiot – who keeps telling his fellow idiots to throw my books on a bonfire and beat me up in the street…”

1934. Vienna. Stefan is one of the most successful authors in the world – universally admired, widely read, and translated into all languages. He has the life of a wealthy playboy and enjoys only the finer things in life – from luxurious travel around the world to mixing in the company of his most dazzling contemporaries in the most fashionable restaurants in Europe. Two things are clouding his long-term prospects though: the rise of the Nazi Party, and the recent appearance of a woman who he knows… but who he cannot, for some reason, remember…

Christopher Hampton’s adaptation of Stefan Zweig’s short story Visit From An Unknown Woman receives its English Language premiere at the Hampstead Theatre following a triumphant season at Vienna’s Josefstadt Theater.

Previous productions from Clare Lizziemore at Hampstead include Amy Rosenthal’s On the Rocks and Nick Payne’s first play Lay Down Your Cross. Other recent productions include Closer, Snowflake, and Bull.

Hampstead Theatre Seating Plan

Although the venue first opened back in 1959 as a Scout Hall, it wasn’t until 2003 that what is now the purpose-built Hampstead Theatre finally opened to the public featuring two performance venues.  The Hampstead Theatre is now home to many new writing and ground-breaking productions in London prior to them making the transfer into the West End.

The intimate and cosy theatre has a seating capacity of 325, and has attracted some of the world’s greatest talent over the years,  including Jude Law, Tamsin Greig, John Malkovich, and Felicity Kendal, who have all appeared in shows at the venue.

A nice modern venue with good facilities and decent viewing angles and good sound throughout. Some of the Dress Circle seats are a little cramped and lacking in legroom and width and some seats within the theatre feature slight restrictions due to pillars so studying the seating plan prior to booking tickets to anthropology is recommended.

From £30.00
