"★★★★ – A fresh and ambitious new play. A giant leap for the West End" – Telegraph
"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." – Evening Standard
Directed by award-winner Ian Rickson (Uncle Vanya), and starring Gemma Arterton (Summerland), Fehinti Balogun (Juliet, Naked) and Lydia Wilson (The Duchess of Malfi), Walden is a compelling debut play by Amy Berryman tackling the themes of climate change and sibling rivalry.
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.
