Lucy Punch will play the leading role of Paige Britain in the West End transfer of Richard Bean’s new play, Great Britain.
Directed by Nicholas Hytner, the National Theatre’s sell out production transferred yesterday to the Theatre Royal Haymarket (9 September 2014) and the opening night will be on 26 September at 7pm.
Great Britain Play at Theatre Royal Haymarket
The theatre is only a short walk from Jermyn Street and if you fancy dining before an evening show there are many restaurants in the area that will also provide a special pre-theatre menu.
Richard Bean’s fast and furious new play is an anarchic and foul-mouthed satire about the press, the police and the political establishment. Paige Britain is the ambitious young news editor of The Free Press, a tabloid newspaper locked in a never-ending battle for more readers. Great Britain received its world premiere at the National Theatre in June this year.
