Based on Caroline Blackwood's book of the same name, Nicholas Wright's new play about the last days of the life of Wallis Simpson recalls what it was to have been an icon in a world with very few icons; it is also an elegy for a lost age, and for lives rendered barren by the emptiness of exile. The play received its world premiere at Hampstead Theatre, London in 2011, directed by former National Theatre artistic director Sir Richard Eyre.
