Until January 4, 2020

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!

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 2020.

January 13 - February 15, 2020

He may have been one of the foremost lad comics of the 90s but Frank Skinner has proven his staying power, rising to become one of the nation's favourite comedians of the last three decades, with his last live tour Frank Skinner: Man in a Suit becoming a sell-out success back in 2014. Now firmly in his 60s, Frank is ready to take on the world of stand up once more with his newest show, Showbiz, chronicling his time living the high life in typical down-to-earth Skinner style.

Garrick Theatre

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.
