Don Juan in Soho
Adored star of stage and screen David Tennant returns to the West End, don’t miss Don Juan in Soho tickets
David Tennant returns to the London stage to play leading lothario Don Juan in Patrick Marber’s dark comedy Don Juan in Soho. Opening at Wyndham’s Theatre next year, Marber’s modern take on Molière’s classic Don Juan sees the hedonistic heartthrob catapulted into contemporary Soho.
Written by Marber, Don Juan in Soho is the savagely funny play that follows Don Juan as a popular DJ in London’s trendiest district. Accompanied by his encouraging sidekick, Stan, the pair wreak havoc across town. Don Juan in Soho was last seen at the Donmar Warehouse in December 2006, directed by Michael Grandage and starring Rhys Ifans, but never saw a West End transfer.
Acclaimed actor David Tennant stars as the titular character in his first return to the West End since Josie Rourke’s Much Ado About Nothing, opposite Catherine Tate. Last seen on stage in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Richard II, Tennant is best-known for his award-winning role in TV’s Doctor Who. Firmly established as one of the UK’s most popular actors, he has several credits under his belt, including Broadchurch, Casanova, Jessica Jones and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Further casting includes Gawn Grainger as Louis and Adrian Scarborough as Stan. Grainger has had an illustrious career, and was most recently seen in The Entertainer at the Garrick Theatre, with further credits spanning across the National Theatre, Almeida, Donmar Warehouse and The Globe. Scarborough was last seen on stage in Sam Mendes’ King Lear at the National Theatre, playing the fool. With extensive credits on both stage and screen, notable performances include Gavin & Stacey, Doctor Who and Hedda Gabler.
Coming to Wyndham’s’ Theatre for a limited season, this dark and disgracefully sexy play is designed by Anna Fleischle with sound and music by Adam Cork, and is directed by Patrick Marber, who has recently had success with Tom Stoppard’s sell-out comedy Travesties, starring Tom Hollander. Don Juan in Soho plays at the London venue from March 28th to June 10th 2017.
