First Look: Production images of Avalanche: A Love Story at Barbican Theatre

When a woman rekindles an early love in her late 30’s her whole life changes. Deeply in love, and full of shared commitment, she and her new husband want a child together. So begins her courageous journey of medical processes and personal rituals; her raw emotions oscillate between high hopes and deep doubt.

Praised for her ‘capacity for emotional directness and a fierce, uncensored honesty’ (Guardian), Maxine Peake (HamletFunny CowHappy Days) is a prolific theatre, television, film actor and playwright.

Inspired by Julia Leigh’s true story, this new play is a powerful, riveting and honest exploration of who we are and how we love, directed by Anne-Louise Sarks.
