The Ambassador Theatre Group stages an exclusive reading of THE GREATEST IS LOVE, a new play by Roland Rocchiccioli, at Theatre Royal Brighton for one night only on Sunday April 22. Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) is joined by Caroline Langrishe (Judge John Deed) to raise funds for the Martlets Hospice.

THE GREATEST IS LOVE tells the moving story of one couple, Rupert and Diana, through a collection of poignant love letters spanning their life together. This extraordinary play sheds a deeply personal light on the pain of separation during the Second World War and the heart-wrenching struggle to return to normality afterwards.

The picture their intimate correspondence paints is one of touching romance and, later, breathtaking honesty as Rupert and Diana learn that amidst our greatest passions, we remain falteringly human.

Caroline Langrishe commented: ‘I am thrilled to be bringing this touching story to life, particularly as it covers such a significant and fascinating time in our recent history.’

Hugh Bonneville added: ‘We’re very grateful to Theatre Royal Brighton for hosting this event which will raise funds for an important local charity.’
