A Very Very Very Dark Matter at the Bridge Theatre starring Jim Broadbent

London Theatre Company present the world premiere of A Very Very Very Dark Matter, a new play by award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh.

BAFTA and Academy award-winning actor Jim Broadbent (IrisMoulin RougeLongford) will lead the cast, directed by Matthew Dunster and designed by Anna Fleischle.

A Very Very Very Dark Matter will play a limited 12 week run from 10 October 2018 until 29 December 2018 at the Bridge Theatre.


In a townhouse in Copenhagen works Hans Christian Andersen, a teller of exquisite and fantastic children’s tales beloved by millions.

But the true source of his stories dwells in his attic upstairs, her existence a dark secret kept from the outside world.

As dangerous, twisted and funny as his National Theatre and Broadway hit The Pillowman, Martin McDonagh’s new play travels deep into the abysses of the imagination.


Jim Broadbent (IrisMoulin RougeLongford,  Bridget Jones Diary, The Pillowman).
