A drama that challenges our notion of honour, our sense of decency and our belief that love will prevail, Honour received its British premiere at the National Theatre in a production directed by Roger Mitchell with Eileen Atkins and Corin Redgrave leading the cast.

Editorial Reviews

Variety
HONOUR makes for surprisingly interesting viewing. Tight, crackling dialogue (usually played out in punchy verbal duels) captures characters unable to deal with emotions...Murray-Smith effectively places her characters in situations that strip away pretense.
Time Out Magazine
...the play's virtues are strong: a distinctive theatrical voice, passionate concerns...HONOUR might just capture a few honors of its own.

    A thought-provoking, well-formed, and stunning play.

    This play is truly a marvel. It is seamless with a flawless storyline and great dialog. Each character is unique and full of depth. The entire play is deep and thought-provoking without being preachy or pretentious.

    Bonus: If you're taking acting classes, there are many wonderful scenes you can to workshop in an acting class (see the four character breakdowns below):

    Honor - A beautiful, elegant, cultivated woman in her fifties.
    Angus (Gus) - Honor's husband. An attractive, slightly youthful man in his fifties.
    Sophie - Their twenty-four-year-old daughter.
    Claudia - A striking young woman in her late twenties.
