La Bete

Harold Pinter Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Hilarious comedy directed by Matthew Warchus (Boeing, Boeing) and starring David Hyde Pierce, Joanna Lumley and Mark Rylance.

Synopsis “La Bête (1991) is a comedy by American playwright, David Hirson. Written in rhymed couplets, the Molière-inspired story, set in 17th-century France, pits dignified, stuffy Elomire, the head of the royal court-sponsored theatre troupe, against the foppish, frivolous street entertainer Valere, whom the troupe’s patron, Prince Conti, wishes them to bring aboard. Despite Elomire’s violent objections, the company is forced to perform one of Valere’s own plays, which results in dramatic changes to the future of Elomire, Valere, and the company itself.”

La Bête ran from 26 June 2010 until 4 September 2010 at the Harold Pinter Theatre (previously known as the Comedy Theatre) in London.
