Hampstead Theatre announces Theo James will join Emilia Fox in the UK premiere of SEX WITH STRANGERS

‘Look, I’m giving you another chance to show the world how talented you are. Take it. It’s worth the risk’

Olivia, an attractive and talented but underappreciated mid-career writer, is unexpectedly trapped overnight in a secluded, snowed-in B&B with Ethan, an equally attractive and wildly successful young blogger.

Her latest novel is an unsung masterpiece; his blog is being made into a movie. She prefers books; he prefers eBooks. She is anonymous; he has half a million Twitter followers. But opposites soon attract – passionately – as each realise they want more of what the other has. But the closer they get, the more they must confront the murky side of ambition, success and Wi-Fi…

Hampstead Theatre today announces that Theo James will join Emilia Fox in the UK premiere of Laura Eason’s smart comedy Sex with Strangers, directed by Peter DuBois. Emilia Fox returns to Hampstead Theatre following the sell-out hit Rapture, Blister, Burn in 2014 and Theo James will make his professional stage debut in this multifaceted love story packed with hidden ambitions, soaring desires and secret agendas.
