The Philanthropist

Until July 22, 2017

Simon Callow directs a starry host of characters in this revival of Christopher Hampton's bourgeoise comedy response to Moliere's Misanthrope. First shown at the Royal Court in 1970, this witty play centres on the hapless Phillip, an academic with a compulsive need to please everyone he comes into contact with. In a change from previous productions, that would usually cast older actors in the roles in the misplaced belief that younger people couldn't possibly handle sharp comedy, Callow's cast is led by The Inbetweeners Simon Bird, Fresh Meat's Charlotte Richie and includes a West End debut from real life philanthropist and model Lily Cole.

Disco Pigs

July 12-August 19, 2017

Enda Walsh's astonishing breakthrough play which 'didn't so much debut as erupt' back in 1997 celebrates its 20th anniversary with this new production at the Trafalgar Studios. Starring Evanna Lynch and Colin Campbell as two teenagers whose intense friendship leads to catastrophe, Disco Pigs is a stunning trip into the heady world of adolescence where a tempest of emotions blur the line between dreams and reality.

Apologia

July 28-November 18, 2017

Rejoice for Stockard Channing who returns to the West End to star in this richly entertaining play from Alexi Kaye Campbell, directed by Jamie Lloyd. Tony-winner Channing takes centre stage as Kristin, renowned art historian and former radical demonstrator, a left-wing product of 60s idealism who never knowingly missed a protest or a picket line. But where Kristin is proud of her part in history, her sons are not quite, wishing that their revolutionary mother had spent a little bit less time suffering for humanity and more time on the suffering humans around her.

Le Grand Mort

September 20-October 28, 2017

Julian Clary returns to the West End this July in this world premiere from the late Stephen Clark. Written for Clary, Le Grand Mort is a dark comedy with macabre themes that will make use of his ability to juggle sharp wit and acerbic asides as he plays Michael, a man preparing dinner in his modish North London flat with surgeon-like precision. As Michael waxes lyrical about the relative uses of a human body after death whilst slicing up ingredients, we find ourselves fearing for the fate of his anticipated guest.

Formerly the Whitehall Theatre, Trafalgar Studios (1 and 2) is a West End theatre in Whitehall. The building was designed by architects Tim Foster and John Muirm and in 1996, was Grade II listed by English Heritage. With a seating capacity of 380, Studio 1 is the larger of the theatre spaces and was opened in June 2004. The theatre was used as a television and radio studio from 1997 to 1999, and since 2004 it is now primarily used to stage plays and musicals.
