This September, Jermyn Street Theatre hosts the world premiere of Alice Allemano's About Leo. Directed by Michael Oakley, the play delves into the world of English-born Mexican artist Leonora Carrington, renowned for her surrealist works that continue to be exhibited at galleries across the world. Moving from modern Mexico to 1930s France, the story follows Carrington - a notoriously reclusive individual - as she meets with journalist Eliza Prentice, who has a family connection that needs to be explored.

 

About Jermyn Street Theatre

A sweet little old theatre in the style of a Victorian music hall, the Jermyn Street Theatre is best enjoyed around Christmas when its location opposite Fortnum's brings well-dressed folk from the Home Counties into the marvellous old building to watch Sweeney Todd, Oliver and other period pantos.
