ABOUT The Starry Messenger

In the vastness of the universe are we all just lonely souls under the same night sky?

Hollywood star and multiple Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Matthew Broderick makes his West End debut in The Starry Messenger by Kenneth Lonergan, Academy Award-winning writer of Manchester-By-The-Sea.

Starring Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Mel Brooks’ The Producers), and Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey, The Handmaid’s Tale), this bittersweet, comic drama is an unblinking exploration of love, hope and understanding our place in the universe, by one of the most celebrated writers working today.

The Starry Messenger will play a limited season from 16 May  2019 until 10 August 2019 at the Wyndham’s Theatre, London

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Mark Williams is lost. An astronomer at New York City’s Planetarium, he feels a closer connection to the infinite, starry sky than to his job or even to his wife, Anne. Mark doesn’t believe in fate or divine intervention, but the universe has other ideas.

After a chance meeting with Angela, a young single mother, the stars appear to have aligned. But when a catastrophic event rips through their lives, Mark is forced to re-evaluate his life, his faith and his place in the universe itself.

WHO’S IN IT? THE STARRY MESSENGER CAST

Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Mel Brooks’ The Producers) and Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey, The Handmaid’s Tale) lead the cast alongside Jim Norton, Jenny Galloway, Rosalind Eleazar, Joplin Sibtain, Sinead Matthews and Sid Sagar.

CREATIVE TEAM

Written by Kenneth Lonergan. Directed by Sam Yates with Set & Costume by Chiara Stephenson and Sound and Music by Alex Baranowsk.
