Until April 29, 2017

Following its critically acclaimed run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Tom Hollander will once again reprise his role as unreliable narrator Henry Carr in Stoppard's deliciously dark comedy Travesties when it transfers to the West End this February. This clever meditation on art, war, and politics is retold through the eyes of a decidedly unremarkable British consular clerk stationed in 1917 Zurich, as he meets a host of iconic figures that makes him question his sanity, and his place in the fast-changing world amidst the background of the Great War.


May 3-7, 2017

This acclaimed one-man show, performed entirely in Russian is based on the poems of Latvian Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky and performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov. First premiering in 2015 in Riga, this project was conceived and helmed by Alvis Hermanis, noted director of Latvia's New Riga Theatre Brodsky. Having already played in New York as part of its international tour, it makes its visit to London in May for a strictly limited engagement of four performances only.

Love in Idleness

May 18-July 1, 2017

After a five star premiere at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Trevor Nunn's expert retooling of this forgotten Terrance Rattigan gem transfers to a new home in the West End. The first production of the play in the capital since 1944, Love in Idleness is the story nearly 18-year-old Michael as he returns from four years of evacuation in Canada. Full of socialist ideals, he is soon horrified to discover the identity of his mother's wealthy new lover.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

July 13-September 17, 2017

Tennessee Williams' feverish classic arrives at the Apollo Theater with Sienna Miller and Jack O'Connell leading the cast. The first Young Vic production to debut on the West End, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is helmed by acclaimed director Benedict Andrews (A Streetcar Named Desire).
