The Caretaker

star 1star 2star 3star 3.5

Until May 14, 2016

Timothy Spall stars as the irascible tramp Davies who is taken into the home of a pair of brothers, causing utter mayhem and emotional turmoil along the way. As Harold Pinter's first commercially successful work, the play premiered in 1960, and is said to be a reflection of Pinter's life in Chiswick, when his neighbour took in a homeless man who happened to stay some weeks. With the two brothers played off against each other by the conniving visitor, we learn about their past lives and aspirations, which has fallen short of both their expectations. The arrival of Davies highlights their apparent failure, despite his own circumstances.

Jekyll and Hyde

May 20-28, 2016

As part of Matthew Warchus' inaugural season leading the Old Vic, as part of a new commission that brings dance into the theatre's repertoire. Produced by brand-new dance collective The McOnie Company, this production re-imagines Robert Louis Stevenson's sinister horror tale in an excitingly physical new modern dance that features music by Grant Olding.

Groundhog Day

July 11-September 17, 2016

With Tony and Olivier-Award winning Matilda: The Musical already under his belt, Australian comic Tim Minchin is bringing Harold Ramis' iconic 1993 movie to the Old Vic Stage with an all-musical treatment. Directed by Matthew Warchus, we follow the story of a flippant and cynical tv news reporter who is sent to a small town to cover the emergence of Pauxantauny Phil, the local groundhog celebrity. However, he finds himself trapped reliving the same day over and over again, until he changes his misanthropic ways!

King Lear

Opens October 25, 2016

One of William Shakespeare's most tragic plays returns to London in this new adaptation starring Glenda Jackson as the titular royal. When a once-proud monarch tries to divide his inheritance between his three daughters based on their perceived loyalty to him and their flattery, he descends into madness as he discovers that his family are just out to line their own pockets - and couldn't care less about him. So what is a king to do as the vultures circle?
