Loosely based on the life of late English cellist Jacqueline du Pré, 'Duet for One' by Tom Kempinski makes it's West End return following it's 2009 run at the Almeida in January.
The award-winning play was made into a film in 1986, starring Julie Andrews (nominated for a Golden Globe for her portrayal) in the lead role as Stephanie Anderson - a world-famous concert violinist who is suddenly struck with multiple sclerosis.

Juliet Stephenson's stage work has included Rosalind in 'As You Like It' (RSC) and most recently as Arkadina in 'The Seagull' at the National Theatre. Her film roles have included 'Truly Madly Deeply', for which she received numerous awards and a BAFTA-nominated performance in 'The Politician's Wife'.
Henry Goodman featured recently at the Almeida in 'The Hypochondriac', as well as an award-winning performance in 'The Merchant of Venice' at the National Theatre.
Tickets for the West End run range from £26 - £46, whilst tickets for the Richmond Theatre run cost between £16.50 and £27.50.
