David Suchet said: ‘This show is very close to my heart and I’m delighted to be bringing it to the Harold Pinter Theatre where I made my West End debut here over 35 years ago, when it was the Comedy Theatre, in Tom Kempinski’s Separation. After the past 18 months I can’t wait to be in the theatre with people again to share some of my treasured memories from over the years. It’s wonderful to be back.’
