Red at the Wyndhams Theatre – 4 May 2018 to 28 July 2018

Red reunites John Logan and Michael Grandage following Peter and Alice with Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw.

MGC Artistic Director Michael Grandage directs this first ever UK revival since directing the world premiere at the Donmar Warehouse in 2009. The production went on to win six Tony Awards, including Best Play.

Award-winning stage and screen actor Alfred Molina reprises his critically acclaimed performance as the American abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko. He is joined by rising star Alfred Enoch of US television drama series How to Get Away With Murder as his assistant Ken.

Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant, and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Mark Rothko takes on his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

No Man’s Land by Harold Pinter at the Wyndham’s Theatre from 18th September 2016

no mans land

Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the UK stage in Sean Mathias’ acclaimed production of No Man’s Land, one of the most popular plays by Harold Pinter.

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart last appeared on the London stage, seven years go when they starred in Waiting for Godot and they now take on another modern classic with a revival of No Man’s Land by Harold Pinter.

The production will begin with a short tour visiting Sheffield, Newcastle, Brighton and Cardiff. No Man’s Land will play at the Wyndham’s theatre in London in September.

Stewart saw the original production of No Man’s Land, starring Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud in the 1970s and promised himself he would play one of the main characters.

The play is centred around two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner who meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst’s stately house nearby.  As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.

Damian Lewis, John Goodman and Tom Sturridge star in a major new revival of David Mamet’s acclaimed 1975 play American Buffalo directed by Daniel Evans at Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.

Damian Lewis is fresh from his acclaimed role as Henry VIII in Wolf Hall on BBC television and found considerable success through the Homeland series.
John Goodman is one of America’s best loved stage and screen actors recently appearing in  Waiting for Godot  and Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui  in New York.
