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 August 5, 2017

Rupert Goold helms a brutally sharp new play by James Graham, which makes its world premiere at the Almeida Theatre this June. Taking aim at one of the world's biggest media tycoons, Rupert Murdoch, this new work follows him as a young man in 1969 as he fights to acquire the Sun newspaper, then a minor player in the red tops. Brash, rebellious and utterly determined to flatten his rivals, watch how Murdoch turned the Sun into one of the most influential newspapers in today's Britain. Fleet Street will never be the same again....


August 12-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.
