The West End revival of Simon Gray’s biting comedy Butley stars Dominic West (The Wire) in the iconic title role of the rapier-tongued lecturer Ben Butley, alongside with Paul McGann (Withnail and I, Doctor Who), Penny Downie, (RSC’s Hamlet, Invictus), Amanda Drew (ENRON, Eastenders) and Martin Hutson (A Very British Sex Scandal).

The production is directed by Lindsay Posner (An Ideal Husband, A View From The Bridge), designed by Peter McKintosh, and with lighting designed by Howard Harrison.

REVIEWS ROUND-UP

“Butley shines like a gold coin, and one that comes with the embossed head of Dominic West, discovered in a sea of candyfloss.”

“In this thrilling performance West somehow combines comedy with tragic depth. The supporting performances are terrific too. Butley is not a show to miss.”

"Gray’s venomous language still pours forth with a startling astringency, and director Lindsay Posner has crafted an intense and strikingly raw revival."
