Why See Don Juan in Soho?
look who's back!
Much loved Doctor Who and Broadchurch star David Tennant makes his stage return in 2017 as the titular Don Juan in Patrick Marber's deliciously dark update of Moliere's infamous 1665 play. Uprooted to modern day Soho, the nearly nocturnal 'D.J' makes his rake's progress through the debauched streets with his valet Stevie keeping a record of his master's outrageous conquests.
Unrepentant and demonic in sating his sexual appetite, our anti-hero finds himself stuck in a prison of his own making, when the previously ignored consequences of his dark detours finally catch up with him in a society obsessed with scandal and public humiliation.
Ravishingly sexy and razor sharp, Marber first created the immortal anew in 2006, where it showed at the Donmar Warehouse with Rhys Ifans in the lead and direction from Michael Grandage. This time around Marber takes the reigns of the show, with design from Anne Fleischle and sound and music by Adam Cork.
Tennant is no stranger to the smooth moves of famed seducers, as many will remember from his turn as Giacomo Casanova in the wildly funny and colourful 2005 BBC drama. Since then he's gone on to further embed himself in the nation's hearts as the cheeky yet charming 10th Doctor, a gruff detective alongside Olivia Coleman in Broadchurch and much more across the world of film, stage, television and radio.
