The play saw Tom star as Robert, a man whose wife Emma (played by Ashton) is having an affair with his best friend, Jerry. The story follows the infidelity in reverse, from its aftermath to its beginnings.

Tom has kept his private life private since his infamous fling with Taylor Swift in 2016.

The actor, known for playing Loki in the Marvel franchise, previously shared that he believes "everyone is entitled to a private life. I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment, and in my mind I don't conflict the two".

"My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate," he added.

Meanwhile, Zawe has confessed she no longer intends to work alongside her beau in the foreseeable future. "I've been working with Tom on stage for a solid year – every night – so now we need at least two years apart now," she joked to the Mirror.
