The Entertainer

Until November 12, 2016

Kenneth Branagh makes a welcome return to the West End with a brand-new season at the Garrick Theatre, helming three productions. The Entertainer will star the man himself in the lead role of Archie Rice in a parable that closely mirrors the decline of the British Empire in a crumbling post-vaudeville setting. Directed by Rob Ashford.

This House

October 30, 2016-February 25, 2017

James Graham's incisive and razor sharp exploration of political machinations makes its West End debut after two sell out runs at The Natoinal Theatre. The action is set during the 1974 hung parliament, and details the skulduggery which was employed to win every single crucial vote.

Potted Panto

December 10, 2016-January 8, 2017

Olivier-winning duo Dan and Jeff are back in the West End this Christmas, with their popular "Potted Panto" show, dedicated to the age-old British tradition of pantomime! Styled in a similar vein to their world-conquering touring show Potted Potter, the madcap pair will whisk you through seven classic pantos in a frenetically funny 80 minutes. Aladdin, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Dick Whittington and Snow White all make an appearance in this two-hander, which is expected to take the Garrick Theatre stage by storm this festive season.

The Miser

March 1-June 10, 2017

Griff Rhys Jones returns to the West End for the first time in five years to star in Sean Foley's adaptation of Moliere's farcical portrait of a family at war over true love and the penny-pinching avarice of their father, the titular miser.

David Walliams' Gangsta Granny

July 26-September 3, 2017

In time to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Birmingham Stage Company will stage a brand-new adaptation of David Walliams' best-selling children's book, Gangsta Granny. Coming to the Garrick Theatre in summer 2017, this Neal Foster co-produced work boasts an incredible creative team with design by Jackie Trousdale and choreography by Chantry Dance Company. With casting yet to be announced, this West End treat is expected to draw kids in over the summer holidays, making it a great way to experience theatre for the first time!

Located on Charing Cross Road, The Garrick Theatre is a West End theatre which opened in 1889, when it was known for its performances of melodrama. The theatre is named in honour of actor David Garrick. Since October 2005, the theatre has been owned and operated under Nimax Theatres Ltd, of Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer. The Grade II listed building now hosts a wide variety of productions.
