Athena Stevens & Jonathan McGuinness star in Schism until 9 June 2018 at London’s Park Theatre

After its premiere at the Finborough Theatre, critically acclaimed new play Schism has transferred for a limited season at the Park Theatre, with author Athena Stevens reprising her role opposite Jonathan McGuinness.

‘You were supposed to make me a better person.’

Failed architect Harrison had plans to end his life. The last thing he needed was Katherine, a young student, breaking into his house begging for his help…

As their chaotic first encounter turns into the beginning of a twenty-year relationship, the unlikely couple grow to realise that they are capable of either building something great together – or absolutely destroying each other.

Following the journey of Harrison and Katherine, Schism is a stunning new play about two people finding each other, and questions at what point does a dream become unrealistic and out of date.

‘It has a palpable authenticity’ – The Guardian

‘Its gutsy heroine is hard to resist’ – The Times

‘Remarkable… both candid & brave’ – The Reviews Hub

‘Offers a seldom seen perspective on lives which are too often overlooked & stereotyped’ – The Stage

‘As authentic as they come’ – Time Out

Author Athena Stevens co-stars with Jonathan McGuinness in this moving two-hander, directed by Lily McLeish and designed by Anna Reid. It runs until 9 June at the Park Theatre.

For the post-show Q&A on Thursday 31 May 2018, I’ll be joined by Athena Stevens to discuss Schism and the issues it touches on.
