The Entertainer

The Entertainer

Shane Richie takes on the role he was born to play, memorably created on stage and screen by Laurence Olivier

Overview

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.

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 startling production.

Chosen as one of the greatest plays of the 20th Century by Michael Billington (chief theatre critic of The Guardian) John Osborne’s classic embarks on its first ever UK Tour.
