The Night of the Iguana
A star-studded cast makes its appearance in this revival of The Night of the Iguana at Noël Coward Theatre. Director James Macdonald adapts Tennessee Williams’ atmospheric drama set in 1940s Mexico. The disgraced ex-minister Reverend Shannon (played by Clive Owen) is working as a tour bus guide when he chooses the wrong tourist to make advances towards. Unsure of what to do next, he strands the bus at a rundown hotel so that he can ask an old friend for advice. Here, a motley crew of tortured souls are battling demons of their own. Lia Williams, Anna Gunn and Julian Glover also star. Catch this intense play from 6 July 2019.
Lynette Linton's production of Lynn Nottage's scorching drama Sweat transfers to the Gielgud theatre after a highly acclaimed run at the Donmar Warehouse. Set in America's poverty-cursed Reading in Pennsylvania, the play examines class, race and identity and the devastating effects of the town's industrial collapse. Three best friends drink in the local bar each night, unaware of the outside forces which threaten to tear them apart. Martha Plimpton reprises her role as the shrewd and cynical factory worker Tracey. Eye-opening, galvanising and utterly essential, Sweat runs for just 50 performances from 7 June 2019.
