Until September 21, 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 wit and bitterness, it looks like whatever the outcome, Bitter Wheat will end up being one of the most talked about shows of the year.

Comedy fans rejoice as Michael Frayn's fantastic farce returns to the West End this autumn for a run at the Garrick Theatre, directed by Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall, Labour of Love). A love letter to backstage chaos and the utter unpredictability of theatre, it's been a classic since its 1982 premiere. Faithfully updated by Frayn for each iteration, it remains fresh and funny for each new audience!

Charing Cross Road 2A, 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.
