This production was filmed for the screen at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.
A fresh and ambitious new play. A giant leap for the West End.
Amy Berryman’s debut play premiered earlier this year as part of Sonia Friedman Productions’ RE:EMERGE season. Directed by Ian Rickson, the play stars Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace), Fehinti Balogun (Juliet) and Lydia Wilson (The Duchess of Malfi) in a three-hander exploring familial love and loss amidst a climate emergency.
Walden bursts with big ideas. With such a talented and eye-catching cast and creative team, Sonia Friedman has achieved a rare kind of alchemy. I urge you to see it.
After returning from a year-long Moon mission, Cassie, a NASA botanist, finds herself in a remote cabin in the woods, where her estranged twin sister, Stella, a former NASA architect, has found a new life with climate activist Bryan. Old wounds resurface as the sisters attempt to pick up the pieces of the rivalry that broke them apart.
Amy Berryman’s intelligent, soulful drama. An original play of ideas.
