    Gemma Arterton stars in climate change drama

    Gemma Arterton is returning to the West End for the first time in five years in Amy Berryman's sci-fi drama, Walden at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

    Set in a future where climate change has led to the human colonisation of other planets, Walden follows NASA botanist, Cassie, who returns to Earth following a year-long mission to the moon. Back home family rifts start to reemerge as her twin sister, Stella, has started a new life with a climate activist. With old wounds bubbling back up to the surface, is their sisterly bond strong enough to withstand the bitter divides?

    Walden is one of several new plays transferring to the West End as part of a new season of works spearheaded by producer Sonia Friedman and director Ian Rickson. The ReEmerge season opens in May at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

    Arterton was last seen in the West End in the Shakespeare's Globe transfer of Nell Gwynn. She is joined in the cast by Fehinti Balogun and Lydia Wilson.

    For a searing examination of climate change, family ties and our moral responsibilities to ourselves and the world at large, look no further than Walden tickets at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

    I honestly don't believe the earth will be destroyed by climate change, but I am interested in space travel, so I was a bit torn by the subject matter. Lovely set. Good performances from the three leads and what sounded like authentic American accents. My cold heart was actually a little moved at the end. And it was so nice to get back to the theatre! (If you're reading this in the future, we had lockdowns, it was a whole thing.)

    An overly ambitious but enjoyable play, the first half worked really well however it had trouble wrapping all the storylines up in a satisfying way with some parts feeling like they were never quite resolved.
