Richmond Theatre Announces Autumn Season…

With the weather beginning to cool down, Richmond Theatre will be opening its doors once again for what is set to be a thrilling and chilling Autumn season filled with award-winning stars, recognisable favourites and gripping stories. Audiences are encouraged to take shelter from the weather in the theatre’s decadent bar spaces before taking their seat in the Grade II-listed Frank Matcham building for an evening of entertainment.

The venue is incredibly excited to open the Autumn season by welcoming the award-winning Andrew Scott to their stage. Scott will be starring in a new one-man production of VANYA – based on the Chekhov classic – before it heads to the West End. The show broke two Richmond records when it first went on sale: it sold the highest number of tickets in one day, and achieved the highest gross sales in a single day, which A Little Life had set earlier this year. There are limited tickets still available for the show, with audiences encouraged to book soon to avoid disappointment.

Richmond are pleased that the venue continues to attract performers of the highest calibre, with several stars confirmed for the upcoming season. In October, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Rupert Everett will star in A VOYAGE ROUND MY FATHER, John Mortimer’s celebrated autobiographical play about a man growing up in the shadow of a brilliant and eccentric barrister, constantly yearning for his father’s love and respect. In November, Catherine Tate and David Threlfall will visit Richmond Theatre in the pre-West End showing of brand-new thriller THE ENFIELD HAUNTING, based on the true story of the Enfield poltergeist of the 1970s. Later that month, Eddie Izzard will be presenting her show THE REMIX, full of her favourite material from the past 35 years. These are the only London dates of Eddie’s tour, so audiences are advised to secure their tickets as soon as possible.

There are also plenty of opportunities to catch a thrilling drama at the venue. Katherine Moar’s debut play FARM HALL will be presented at the theatre, based on the remarkable true story of German nuclear physicists detained at Farm Hall between July 1945 and January 1946. The best-selling crime novel of all time AND THEN THERE WERE NONE will receive a brand-new production, and West End sensation THE WOMAN IN BLACK is set to chill audiences, starring Richmond Theatre’s very own Mark Hawkins. For those looking for something a bit lighter, PETER PAN GOES WRONG sets sail in September – Mischief Theatre’s production of the awfully big adventure promises to definitely and spectacularly not go right.

The venue will also be playing host to several special events this autumn, featuring familiar faces. In October, Ruby Wax returns to the stage with her new show I’M NOT AS WELL AS I THOUGHT I WAS, billed as her rawest, darkest and funniest show yet. Co-presenter of BBC Two’s ‘DNA Family Secrets’ Professor Turi King will uncover how DNA has revolutionised genealogy, forensics and more in her show FAMILY HISTORY, and Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick will offer an antidote to the hectic whirlwind of modern living. In November, SISTER SLEDGE LIVE FEATURING KATHY SLEDGE will take to the stage, playing all their greatest hits. If adventure is more your style, then don’t miss MARK ‘BILLY’ BILLINGHAM, the Chief Instructor on Channel 4’s ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’, as he shares his incredible inspirational story
