Important Info: Ticket purchases will be limited to a maxium of six tickets per person across all performances. Tickets will be dispatched 2 weeks prior to the performance. Audio Described Performance -  7.30pm Tuesday 13 September 2016.  Captioned Performance - 7.30pm Tuesday 6 September 2016.

NOTE: John Hurt has withdrawn from this production and will no longer be playing the role of Billy Rice.

The classic play from John Osborne returns to London more than half a century since it was first staged in the capital. As part of the Kenneth Branagh residency in the West End, those with theatre tickets will get to see a renowned show with an interesting history behind it, which provides a commentary of Britain’s place in the post-war world of the 1950s.

For audiences in the capital, this will be a must-see and thanks to the talent working onstage and behind the scenes it is likely to attract a great deal of attention ahead of its start date.

The Entertainer introduces us to the character of Archie Rice, who was played by Laurence Olivier on the show’s first run at the Royal Court Theatre in 1957. He is an angry man in the middle years of his life, frustrated by his fall from grace. He spends his time performing his revue in an old venue, which is weathered by time, and it is clear that his best years are behind him.

John Osborne, the writer of the show, was a well known playwright whose best known work was his debut show Look Back In Anger, with The Entertainer created for Laurence Olivier. His other works include The World of Paul Slickey and A Patriot For Me, among others. He was an influential talent and his work his still held in high regard.

Kenneth Branagh, meanwhile, has had a hugely successful career both as an actor and director with various forays into the world of Shakespeare and Hollywood blockbusters. From performing in works like Henry V and films like Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets to directing Hamlet and the superhero film Thor. More recently he directed both Richard Madden and Lily James in Cinderella and the trio reunite for this season’s Romeo & Juliet.

So it is clear that a residency from a name like Kenneth Branagh will have audiences clamouring to pick up theatre tickets.

The Entertainer runs in the West End in a year that also brings The Winter’s Tale and Romeo & Juliet. It appears at the Garrick Theatre from Saturday 20th August 2016.
