New Yasmina Reza Play Set for London’s Jermyn Street Theatre in Fall

News   New Yasmina Reza Play Set for London’s Jermyn Street Theatre in Fall Yasmina Reza is best known for her play Art, though her Life x 3, which was seen in London last year, is still running to critical acclaim on Broadway, in a production starring Helen Hunt and John Turturro.

Her latest, Hammerklavier, is a stage adaptation of her autobiographical novel set in Paris. It describes the various stages of a woman's life, focussing on her shared love, with her father, of a Beethoven sonata. The book won an Academie Francaise Award in 1997 and the play has been seen at Edinburgh (2002) and in Paris.

Now it has been announced that a production of Hammerklavier will be staged at Jermyn Street Theatre beginning Sept. 1 for a four-week season. It will star Susie Lindeman with direction by Mark Kilmurry.
