Sir Richard Eyre’s The Snail House comes to Hampstead Theatre for a limited run!
“I’m not saying I was wise or heroic… I worked in clinics and hospitals and sat on committees and gave advice. I saved lives and I got rewarded and I’m bloody well not going to apologise for it.”
Written and directed by Sir Richard Eyre, The Snail House is a compelling new drama.
The Snail House runs until 15 October 2022 at Hampstead Theatre, London.
What is The Snail House about?
Sir Neil Marriot had a ‘good pandemic’, becoming familiar to millions from his TV appearances as a government medical advisor. His service even earned him a knighthood, and he is now rewarding himself with a lavish birthday party in the hallowed surroundings of his son’s alma mater. But, amidst the oak panelling, the champagne and the silver service, his family are at one another’s throats again, and he thinks there’s something familiar – and somehow unsettling – about one of the catering staff…
