Special Offer – Save £18 on tickets to What The Butler Saw
What’s the deal?
Book What the Butler Saw tickets during our special Sale and save £18.
What’s the show about?
Take one lust-crazed psychiatrist, his unfaithful wife, a naïve secretary who just can’t keep her clothes on, a blackmailing bellboy and a government inspector who’s barmier than the rest of them put together.
It all adds up to a classic British farce that radiates the rollicking ‘oo-er missus!’ vibe of a Carry On film while gleefully skewering the pomposity and hypocrisy of mid-20th century British society.
Why should I see it?
Like The Beatles and England’s World Cup win, What the Butler Saw is a classic slice of Sixties Britain that’s as fresh and uplifting today as it was in that golden decade of mini-skirts and free love.
This new production of Joe Orton’s masterful comedy features an unbeatable comic cast headed by Blackadder’s Captain Darling, Tim McInnerny, as self-serving shrink Dr Prentice.
Offering more-than-capable support is one of Britain’s best stand-ups, Omid Djalili, here plying his other trade of award-winning actor in the role of the government inspector.
Former Miss Moneypenny Samantha Bond is sensationally saucy as Prentice’s sozzled spouse, while Georgia Moffett radiates wonderfully wide-eyed innocence while spending most of the play in her scanties.
What should I do now?
Book your tickets now to see this great revival of one of modern master Joe Orton’s sharpest comedies.
Hurry! Book your tickets now >

Griff Rhys Jones to star in Oliver!

September 15, 2009 

Comedy appears to be a key factor in casting the role of Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh’s multi-million pound production of Oliver! at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

First Rowan Atkinson was cast in the lead role when the show opened at the Theatre Royal in January this year, followed by current Fagin, Iranian comedian Omid Djalili. And now the producers have announced that TV and stage star Griff Rhys Jones has landed the part of Dickens’ greatest villain.

Griff shot to fame in the late seventies on satirical TV show Not The Nine O’Clock News alongside Rowan Atkinson. No stranger to theatre, he has won Laurence Olivier best comedy awards for his performances in Charley’s Aunt and An Absolute Turkey and has enjoyed great success on stage and TV.

Producer of Oliver! Cameron Mackintosh said, “I’ve wanted to work with Griff for years so I’m delighted that the marvellous role of Fagin has tempted him back to the stage this Christmas. Griff is an actor with an amazing array of successful talents, all of which will undoubtedly be poured into his unique and entertaining interpretation of one of Dickens’ most famous and beloved creations. I can’t wait!”

Griff joins the cast of the Rupert Goold directed show alongside BBC “I’d Do Anything” winner Jodie Prenger, as Nancy and performs from 14 December until June 2010.
