Let It Be

star 1star 2star 3

Until September 27, 2015

This super-popular tribute show to the Fab Four makes a welcome return to the West End, following its sell-out UK and Ireland tour. In this, the 51st anniversary year of the Beatles' first album, this strictly limited run at the Garrick Theatre is a must-see for fans of all ages!

Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain - Part III

Until September 5, 2015

As if being the one of the most loved (and hilarious) kids (and adults) TV shows of recent years wasn't enough , Horrible Histories is returning to the stage to delight, inform and entertain us once again with the third part in the sizzling saga that is Barmy Britain!

The Winter's Tale

October 17, 2015-January 13, 2016

Following the announcement that esteemed playwright, actor and director Kenneth Branagh would be setting up a brand-new theatre company, the Garrick Theatre will be presenting Shakespeare's "problem play" The Winter's Tale, directed by and starring Branagh himself opposite Dame Judi Dench. This production is one of five spearheaded by Branagh including Romeo and Juliet and The Entertainer.


October 18, 2015-January 16, 2016

Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in Terence Rattigan's affectionate homage to the art (and madness) of theatre, produced as part of his all-star season at the Garrick Theatre this year. When a professional theatre company premiers their production Romeo and Juliet on opening night in a small Midlands town, the two leads are shocked to discover secrets about each other that could tear their real-life marriage apart. Bigamy, the realisation of age and farcical attempts by their put-upon stage manager to find a real job all combine for a chaotic opening night!

All On Her Own

October 28, 2015-January 13, 2016

Zoe Wanamaker stars in this one-woman play by Terence Rattigan. Performed as part of a double bill with Kenneth Branagh's Harlequinade, these two contrasting plays provide an exciting challenge for Wanamaker as well as a unique opportunity to see these very two very different Rattigan productions. All On Her Own sees Wanamaker take on the role of a woman with a secret, alone at midnight in London who has to share with us a terrible burden that is both sinister and heart breaking.

The Painkiller

March 5-April 30, 2016

After seven years directing up a storm in Hollywood, with blockbuster hits like Thor and Cinderella to his name, Kenneth Branagh returns to the London stage for a season of five shows at The Garrick. Third on the list is a staging of The Painkiller, by Francis Veber, which revoles around a suicidal photographer and a cool-as-ice hitman. Comedian Rob Brydon also stars in the exquisite farce.

Romeo And Juliet

May 12-August 13, 2016

Not content with playing the unashamedly cute couple in Disney's live action Cinderella in 2015, Richard Madden and Lily James are pairing up yet again (!) for a revival of Romeo and Juliet, at the Garrick Theatre, once again directed by Kenneth Branagh. The play was last seen on Broadway starring Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad as the doomed lovers, and is set to take London by storm, in what will be a bumper season year for Branagh at the Garrick Theatre. Derek Jacobi has just been announced to join the cast as hot-headed Mercutio in what is seen as a move against ageism in the theatre.

Kenneth Branagh's Plays at the Garrick

Two years of planning have gone into Kenneth Branagh's all-star residency at the Garrick Theatre, aptly entitled "Plays at the Garrick".
