The Starry Messenger
In the vastness of the universe are we all just lonely souls under the same night sky?
Hollywood star and multiple Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Matthew Broderick makes his West End debut in The Starry Messenger by Kenneth Lonergan, Academy Award-winning writer of Manchester By The Sea.
Mark Williams is lost. An astronomer at New York City's Planetarium, he feels a closer connection to the infinite, starry sky than to his job or even to his wife, Anne. Mark doesn't believe in fate or divine intervention, but the universe has other ideas.
After a chance meeting with Angela, a young single mother, the stars appear to have aligned. But when a catastrophic event rips through their lives, Mark is forced to re-evaluate his life, his faith and his place in the universe itself.
Starring Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Mel Brooks?'The Producers), and Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey, The Handmaid's Tale), this bittersweet, comic drama is an unblinking exploration of love, hope and understanding our place in the universe, by one of the most celebrated writers working today.
16th May to 10th August 2019
Following a sold-out run in New York, FLEABAG, Phoebe Waller-Bridge's award-winning comedic play, directed by Vicky Jones, comes home to London for 30 performances only from 20th August.
The play that inspired the hit television series, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
Don't miss your final chance to see this 'witty, filthy and supreme... one-woman show' (The Guardian), running for a strictly limited season at the Wyndham's Theatre.
