Until June 1, 2024

Returning to the West End following its sold-out, Olivier-nominated run in early 2023, this extraordinary new play makes an additional West End bow. Through a mesmerising display of music, movement and verse, Nouveau Riche and playwright Ryan Calais Cameron's For Black Boys Who Have Considered Suicide When The Hue Gets Too Heavy presents a story of six young black men in group therapy. From merrily swapping fashion tips to experiences of profound sadness, For Black Boys... offers a window into black masculinity and identity in a freeform style that captures the imagination from the very first scene.

Instructions For A Teenage Armageddon

Until April 28, 2024

Solely performed by Bridgerton star Charithra Chandran, Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon tells the story of a 17-year-old girl who undergoes the death of her sister in an untimely Yorkshire pudding incident'. In an attempt to cope with the loss, the teenager finds herself joining a local scout group. Based on the book by Rosie Day (Brave, disruptive and rule-breaking, this is a book unlike any other.' Hachette), this tale of self-discovery and finding your place in an unforgiving world is set to be illuminating, heartwarming and unforgettable!

June 13 - August 3, 2024

Playwright James Graham (Dear England) and director Kate Wasserberg present an incredibly powerful adaptation of Alan Bleasdale's seminal 80's TV series Boys From The Blackstuff, now transferring to the Garrick Theatre after a run at the National Theatre. A gritty, funny, and arresting story, it focuses on the lives of a group of unemployed men in Liverpool in the 80s.

Why Am I So Single?

August 27, 2024 - February 13, 2025

With its infectious songs and romantic escapades, this brand-new musical is bound to be a hit. With the same team that brought us everyone's favorite Henry VIII-based sing-a-long Six', the West End can expect an incredible show this autumn. Writers Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss had this to say about the upcoming musical: "This is ultimately a musical about two friends, their desire for love, and how they deal with loneliness. We hope people come away feeling super uplifted".

Charing Cross Road 2A, London WC2H 0HH

  • Year opened: 1889
  • Capacity: 656
  • Concession stands
  • Merchandise booths
  • Disabled access
  • In-house bar
  • 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.
