Hampstead Theatre will stage Simon Gray’s Cell Mates as part of its Autumn season 2017. Directed by Artistic Director Edward Hall, this absorbing drama explores how personal freedom is an illusion and even friendship must have carefully circumscribed limits in a world where deception is a reflex response.
