Background


Shane Richie takes on the role memorably created on stage and screen by Laurence Olivier, alongside Diana Vickers and the Olivier award-winning Sara Crowe.


For the first time since its premiere in 1957, John Osborne's classic is given a vibrant new setting and an electric new vision in Sean O'Connor's exciting production.


From the writer of Look Back in Anger, The Entertainer was chosen as one of the greatest plays of the 20th Century by Michael Billington (chief theatre critic of The Guardian).


Synopsis


1982: Archie Rice is a washed-up entertainer playing a summer season.


As his soldier son sails with the Task Force to liberate the Falklands, his daughter Jean returns from campaigning against the war, and Archie's professional and personal lives collide with devastating consequences.
