Until May 12, 2018

Although written over 50 years ago, Gore Vidal's political comedy is still startlingly relevant today. Concerning the competition between two Democratic party candidates to stand for their party, the liberal William Russell (Martin Shaw) and the morally grey Joseph Cantwell, Vidal hilariously and skillfully captures the anti-intellectualism, grandstanding and Machiavellian scheming that still dominates the political landscape to this day.

The Jungle

June 15 - November 3, 2018

After wowing audiences last year at the off-West End venue, the Young Vic, The Jungle returns to London this summer as it makes it West End transfer. Set in the refugee camp in Calais, The Jungle follows the creation and destruction of the camp. With many of the original cast returning to perform in its West End run, this is truly a transfer like no other with some cast members even coming through the Calais camp itself.

From the author of the epic juggernaut, Angels in America, comes Caroline, or Change, a beautiful and poignant tale of friendship, bravery and hope. Transferring to the West End this year, Olivier Award Winner Sharon D. Clarke will continue to shine in the title role, alongside director Michael Longhurst as this virtuosic musical uplifts and moves London audiences.

Located near Trafalgar Square, The Playhouse is a West End Theatre, opened in 1882. It was originally built by F. H. Fowler and Hill with a larger seating capacity than it currently has. After being restored in 1907, it reopened as The Playhouse in 1987. From 1951 until 1976, the venue was used consistently by the BBC as a live performance recording studio. The Ambassador Group managed the venue from 2002, and in 2013, they bought full ownership of The Playhouse.
