Previously Posted: Theo James will join Emilia Fox in the UK premiere of Laura Eason’s smart comedy Sex with Strangers. Directed by Peter DuBois, it runs at Hampstead Theatre from February 2 (previews from January 27) to March 4, 2017.

Olivia (Fox), an attractive and talented but underappreciated mid-career writer, is unexpectedly trapped overnight in a secluded, snowed-in B&B with Ethan (James), 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..

Theo James, who will make his professional stage debut in Sex with Strangers, trained at Bristol Old Vic before launching his film career. He has starred in the Divergent series, based on the novels by Veronica Roth, as well as other films including War on Everyone, The Benefactor, The InBetweeners Movie and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. Upcoming films due for release include The Secret Scripture and Backstabbing for Beginners.

His television credits include Golden Boy, Downton Abbey and Bedlam.

Sex with Strangers is designed by Jonathan Fensom.
