After stunning with her powerhouse performance as Momma Rose in 2015's revival of Gypsy, Imelda Staunton returns to the West End in 2017 in the late Edward Albee's masterpiece alongside Game of Thrones' Conleth Hall. The pair will take on the central roles of Martha and George, a married couple for whom psychological games and emotional terrorism defines their fractious domesticity.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that any actor worth their salt will eventually tackle the Dane. One of the world's most recognisable plays, Hamlet allows the player the chance to explore the true depths of their performance. Welcome then to Andrew Scott, whose incredible performance as the troubled prince at the Almeida has afforded him a West End transfer, and a fantastic opportunity to bring this masterpiece to a wider audience.

Originally the Comedy Theatre until 2011, The Harold Pinter Theatre is a West End theatre on Panton Street, which opened in 1881. The venue was largely reconstructed during the 1950s and re-opened in 1955. In 1972 the building was Grade II listed by English Heritage. The owners of the theatre, Ambassador Theatre Group, renamed The Comedy Theatre to The Harold Pinter Theatre in October 2011. The venue hosts a variety of plays and long-lasting successful musicals.
