ABOUT No Villain

Arthur Miller’s first ever play ‘No Villain’ comes to the West End.

No Villain which premiered to critical acclaim and sell-out performances at The Old Red Lion in 2015 returns to the London stage.

Directed by Sean Turner, this remarkable debut play gives a tantalising glimpse of Miller’s early life, the seeding of his political values and the beginning of his extraordinary career.

No Villain will run from 14 June 2016 until 23 July 2016 at Trafalgar Studios.


No Villain tells the story of a garment industry strike that sets a son against his factory proprietor father. Here, Miller explores the Marxist theory that would see him hauled before the House Un-American Activities Committee years later.


The cast includes David Bromley as Abe Simon, Nesba Crenshaw as Esther Simon, Kenneth Jay as Grandpa Barnett, Stephen Omer as Roth/Dawson/Man, and George Turvey as Ben Simon.


Directed by Sean Turner, with design by Max Dorey, lighting design by Jack Weir and sound design by Richard Melkonian.
