Based on the original Donmar production this new production of Red will see Award-winning actor Alfred Molina reprise his acclaimed performance as the American abstract painter Mark Rothko. He will be joined by Rising star Alfred Enoch of US television series How To Get Away With Murder.
Martin McDonagh’s The Lieutenant of Inishmore will receive a rare revival in the West End running at the Noel Coward Theatre from 23 June to 8 September 2018. It follows the 2013 award-winning production of McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan.
The play which premiered at the RSC in 2001 stars Aidan Turner as Mad Padraic, a terrorist deemed too violent to be part of the IRA. The play is a brilliant satire on terrorism, an acute observation of violence in contemporary culture and a hilarious farce.
