Hampstead Theatre have announced their mainstage productions including Stockard Channing and Rebecca Night in ‘night Mother and Tamson Greig in Peggy For You.
Hampstead Theatre is delighted to announce its remaining Main Stage productions for 2021.
Stockard Channing and Rebecca Night will perform in the Pulitzer Prize-winning ‘night, Mother by Marsha Norman. This astonishing play, which had its UK premiere at Hampstead Theatre in 1985, will be directed by the theatre’s Artistic Director, Roxana Silbert. ‘night, Mother will run from 22 October until 4 December 2021.
‘night, Mother, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama (1983) and the Susan Smith Blackburn Award (1982-83), explores a mother and a daughter’s lives, relationships and up-to-the-minute life defining choices with unblinking honesty, raw humour and suspense.
Tamsin Greig will perform in Alan Plater’s raucously funny Peggy For You. Richard Wilson will direct this Olivier-nominated play, which had its world premiere at Hampstead Theatre in 1999. Peggy For You will run from 10 December until 29 January 2022.
Peggy For You is based on the life of Alan Plater’s former agent, the legendary Peggy Ramsay. It received its world premiere at Hampstead Theatre in 1999 and was Olivier nominated for Best New Comedy (2001). Plater’s raucously funny play is peopled with characters who fall under the spell of this unlikely heroine, who believed infinitely more in art than she did in money – or in good manners.
From 27 September onwards, Main Stage productions will return to 100% capacity, but a limited number of socially distanced performances will be available.
