Open Run

After last year's successful run of Shakespeare's infamous tragedy starring one of his Sherlock castmates, Andrew Scott takes on the troubled Danish prince in this brand new production for the Almeida, directed by Robert Icke.


Until September 30, 2017

Bond and Paddington star Ben Whishaw returns to the Almeida stage in a new play by Chris Shinn, marking the first performance since his star turn in Bakkhai in 2015. Taking on the role of a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who believes that he hears the word of God, he faces violent opposition to his project, launching a rocket to space. But will this aerospace billionaire succeed in his endeavour? This new play will be helmed by Ian Rickson, previously artistic director at the Royal Court Theatre.


October 10-November 24, 2017

Tony Award-nominated British treasure Victoria Hamilton returns to the London stage this autumn, in a new drama by Mike Bartlett that kicks off the Almeida's new season. Known primarily for her roles in costume dramsa including The Crown, Goodbye Mr Chips and various Jane Austen adaptations take on the role of a woman who decides to find hope by restoring a ruined garden in England's rural countryside.

The Twilight Zone

December 5, 2017-January 27, 2018

You probably hid behind the sofa as a child whilst your parents watched the show; the tune is unmistakeably recognisable, and promises all sort of dread to come; you may have even been on the rides in the Disney parks. Whichever generation you're from, the Twilight Zone has cemented itself into popular culture. Now it heads to the stage for the first time ever.

Summer and Smoke

January 24-April 7, 2018

This rarely staged drama by Tennessee Williams has often been overlooked in favour of works such as "To Kill A Mockingbird" and now comes to the Almeida Theatre in February, directed by Rebecca Frecknell. Spanning the course of 16 years, we follow the spiritual and sexual development of a girl as she blossoms into a young woman, and the fraught bond she has with a male childhood friend.
