The Motive and The Cue

Until March 23, 2024

Fresh from a nigh-on sold-out run at the National's Lyttleton Theatre, this much acclaimed new play from Jack Thorne transfers to the Noel Coward Theatre for a strictly limited reprise, beginning in December 2023. Directed by Sam Mendes and starring Mark Gatiss, Johnny Flynn, and Tuppence Middleton, this vibrant and ferociously funny piece offers a peek into a rehearsal room boiling over with ego as John Gielgud (Gatiss) prepares to direct Richard Burton (Flynn) as Hamlet on Broadway.

April 1 - June 22, 2024

Sir Ian McKellen once more proves that age is no barrier to the stage as he returns to tread the boards in this new play adapted and directed by Robert Icke. A reimagining of William Shakespeare's Henry VI Parts I and II that distills the two plays into one, McKellen will once again take on the Bard's work as Sir John Falstaff, friend of young Hal and partner in mischief.

October 9 - December 21, 2024

The Cold War classic Dr. Strangelove by legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick gets its first-ever stage adaptation, by Armando Iannucci and Sean Foley and starring Steve Coogan! Released in 1964, the iconic movie was set to the tense overhanging nuclear fears and strained relations between the USSR and the USA. With the Kubrick estate fiercely protective over the director's game-changing legacy, they have regularly shunned past attempts to adapt his work. This will therefore be the first time a director has been allowed into Kubrick's world, so excitement is radiating from all corners.
