Rehearsal images for Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company’s The Painkiller

The Painkiller Kenneth Branagh Theatre CompanyRehearsal images have been released today for The Painkiller which is the fourth production in the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company’s Plays at the Garrick season, and stars Claudie Blakley, Kenneth Branagh, Rob Brydon, Mark Hadfield, Marcus Fraser and Alex Macqueen. Sean Foley directs his hilarious adaptation of Francis Veber’s French farce.

One of them is a killer… one of them wants to die… What could possibly go wrong?

Sean Foley directs his darkly hilarious adaptation of Francis Veberʼs classic French farce as Kenneth Branagh and Rob Brydon reprise the roles they played to great acclaim at the Belfast’s Lyric Theatre inaugural season in this comic tour-de-force.

Sean Foley said: “The Painkiller proved to be a very funny evening in the theatre in its first incarnation at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast. I’m delighted to have the chance to further develop this comedy with the remarkable double act of Kenneth Branagh and Rob Brydon, who, together with the brilliant Mark Hadfield, were a joy to direct in the first production. I know that they are excited as I am to also be welcoming to our cast the extraordinary talents of Claudie Blakley, Marcus Fraser and Alex Macqueen, and we will all be working as hard as possible to bring this darkly hilarious farce to explosive life for London audiences.
