Until March 19, 2019

Fresh from his successful runs at Edinburgh Fringe and Soho Theatre, comic writer and performer, Adam Kay brings his best-selling first-hand account of life as a junior doctor, This Is Going To Hurt, to the Garrick Theatre in 2019. The award-winning comedian reads from the diaries he jotted between endless shifts, social isolation, and vexing bureaucracy.

Bitter Wheat

June 7 - September 14, 2019

John Malkovich makes his much-anticipated stage return this summer in David Mamet's new play, a searing and satirical black comedy that promises to 'rip the pashmina off the suppurating wound that is showbusiness'. Bitter Wheat will follow the rise and fall of a maniacal and depraved studio boss, Barney Fein, and his all-consuming campaign for awards glory. Sound familiar? With Mamet's familiar with and bitterness, it looks like whatever the outcome, Bitter Wheat will end up being one of the most talked about shows of the year.

Garrick Theatre

2 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0HH

  • Year opened: 1889
  • Capacity: 656
  • Concession stands

  • Coat check

Although seemingly vast from the Charing Cross Road exterior and originally seating 1,500, The Garrick is now a rather smaller capacity theatre, currently seating 656.

Untouched in over 60 years is the upper gallery, with its original bench seating intact, just in case of excessive demand. With the dress circle situated on street level, the theatre saw extensive excavations during its erection, with work halted by the discovery of a subterranean river running through the site, hidden since Roman times.

Officially opening in 1889, the theatre was financed by W.S Gilbert of 'and Sullivan' fame and is named for famous thesp David Garrick. Mostly hosting comedy and comedy-drama through the years, notable productions have included No Sex Please We're British, the West End Transfer of the National Theatre's revival of an Inspector Calls and Sir Kenneth Branagh's year-long residency in 2016.
