The Bridge Theatre is to premiere a new play by Martin McDonagh next autumn with a cast led by Jim Broadbent. A Very Very Very Dark Matter will be directed by Matthew Dunster with a cast led by Jim Broadbent.
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.
A Very Very Very Dark Matter will preview from 10 October 2018. Full casting and members of the creative team will be announced in due course.
