Following wide acclaim at Hampstead Downstairs last year, James Fritz’s Olivier-nominated debut play Four Minutes Twelve Seconds, directed by award-winning director Anna Ledwich, transfers to Trafalgar Studios this November.
Seventeen year old Jack is the apple of his mother’s eye. Di and David have devoted their whole lives to giving him every opportunity they never had and, as a result, Jack is smart, outgoing, and well on his way to achieving the grades to study Law at Durham University.
But, a startling incident outside the school gates threatens to ruin everything they’ve strived for an incident that suggests a deep hatred of their son. As events begin to accelerate, Di and David struggle to find answers, doubting Jack’s closest friends, Jack himself and ultimately themselves. Who can they trust as faith in their son’s innocence begins to crumble?
The cast of Four Minutes Twelve Seconds will be reprising their roles from Hampstead Downstairs: Kate Maravan (British comedy series Broken News, BBC TV series New Tricks) will star as Di, Jonathan McGuinness (BBC production of Wolf Hall, Love’s Labour’s Lost (The Royal Shakespeare Company) will play David, Ria Zmitrowicz (Arcadia (The English Touring Theatre), The Crucible (The Royal Exchange) will play Cara.
