Noel Coward Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana returns to the West End in a stunning new production at the Noel Coward Theatre.

Golden Globe, BAFTA and Emmy award-winning Clive Owen (Closer, The Bourne Identity, The Knick) stars as the defrocked Reverend Shannon alongside Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad), Lia Williams (The Crown, Mary Stuart) and Julian Glover (The Empire Strikes Back, Game of Thrones) in a rare revival of Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana.

The Night of the Iguana will play a limited 12 week season from 6 July 2019 until 28 September 2019 at the Noel Coward Theatre, London.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

In a ramshackle resort perched at the edge of the Mexican jungle, a group of troubled travellers seeks shelter from a tropical storm.

Tennessee Williams’ feverishly poetic 1961 drama follows a widowed hotel owner and a defrocked Southern preacher who turns up on her veranda. A portrait artist travelling with her 97 year old poet grandfather, a bus full of fuming college administrators, and a party of vacationers who collide in this drama about the impossible journey to outrun the demons within.

WHO’S IN IT? The Night of the Iguana CAST

The cast features Clive Owen as Reverend Shannon, Anna Gunn as Maxine Faulk, Lia Williams as Hannah Jelkes and Julian Glover as Nonno.

CREATIVE TEAM

Written by Tennessee Williams, directed by James MacDonald, with set & costume by Rae Smith, lighting by Neil Austin and sound by Max Pappenheim.

REVIEWS

‘Owen and Lia Williams are quietly devastating as the play’s lost souls’ Variety

‘Lia Williams is magnificent’ The Stage

‘Anna Gunn lends the proprietary Maxine a radiant sensuality that belies her profound loneliness and rampant jealousy’ The Guardian

‘Smith’s set is a thing of wonder, like a gigantic extra character, vivid and huge and disconcertingly believable, a portal to another time and place’ Time Out

Clive Owen to star in Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana
Clive Owen will star in a rare revival of Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana at London’s Noel Coward Theatre later this year. The Academy Award nominee, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Emmy award-winning actor will play troubled defrocked minister Reverend Shannon in his first London stage role in 18 years.  Owen is best known for his film roles including Closer, Sin City, Derailed, Inside Man, Children of Men, and The International and Gosford Park. The cast also features Break Bad's Anna Gunn, playing a devious lonely widow and owner of the rundown Mexican hotel where the action takes place; Lia Williams (The Crown, Mary Stuart) playing an itinerant portrait artist and spinster, Hannah Jelkes; and  Julian Glover (Grand Maester Pycelle in HBO's Game of Thrones) cast as Hannah's 97-year-old poet grandfather, Nonno. Owen was last on stage in the 2017 Broadway production of M. BUTTERFLY, having made his Broadway debut in the 2015 American Airlines Theater revival of Old Times. His stage work includes Lawrence Boswell’s staging of Peter Nichols A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, Patrick Marber’s original production of Closer at the National Theatre and Design for Living at the Donmar Warehouse. Set in the Mexican rainforest in 1940, a group of lost souls collide at a rundown hotel in an epic battle between flesh and spirit, captivity and freedom, art and faith - heightened by the arrival of a tropical rain-storm.
