KINKY BOOTS REVEALS FIRST LOOK AT FINAL LONDON COMPANY A hit with audiences since it opened in September 2015, Kinky Boots, the winner of every major Best Musical award, will play its final performance at London’s Adelphi Theatre on 12 January 2019. After celebrating its third birthday in the West End in September, Kinky Boots will also embark on an extensive UK tour from autumn 2018 through 2019. With a book by Broadway legend and four-time Tony® Award-winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles), songs by Grammy® and Tony® Award-winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper and direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), this joyous musical celebration is about the friendships we discover, and the belief that you can change the world when you change your mind. Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos. With direction and choreography by two-time Tony® Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray), Kinky Boots is the winner of every major Best Musical award including three Olivier Awards, three WhatsOnStage Awards as well as six Broadway Tony® Awards. ARISTOCRATS Donmar until 22 September The ‘Big House’ in Lyndsey Turner’s slow burn revival of the late Brian Friel’s 1979 family drama is tiny – Es Devlin’s design reduces Ballybeg Hall to a perfectly fitted out doll’s house which retains the memories of earlier days when life was very different for those born and raised there. The Catholic O’Donnells’ once splendid Georgian home is crumbling – just like the dying paterfamilias Father, a retired judge now reduced to communicating with his family via a baby monitor. Four of his adult offspring have gathered for the forthcoming marriage of the youngest – fragile, piano-playing Claire – to a much older and far from suitable man. This is no love match. But the siblings’ reunion proves to be the occasion of a funeral rather than a wedding. And, as visiting American academic Tom (there to research the ‘upper strata of Roman Catholic society in rural Ireland’) soon realises, fact and fantasy merge in the memories of this dysfunctional family, historically isolated by status from the local villagers and by religion from wealthy Protestant landowners. Elaine Cassidy’s elegant, unhappy alcoholic Alice now lives in London with her husband. Older Judith (Eileen Walsh) who stayed at home is worn down by the efforts of caring for their father and a house falling into disrepair, despite the devoted efforts of David Ganly’s robust handyman, Willie. David Dawson invests misfit son Casimir (who admits that he might well have been seen as the village idiot had he come from a less privileged background) with a febrile intensity. Unable – or unwilling – to distinguish reality from fantasy, he’s constantly making attempts to establish telephone contact with a wife and children back in Hamburg (who may or may not exist) and recounting impossible details of past visitors to the house. And as Friel’s play (with its undeniable Chekhovian influence) progresses, the splendour of what once was is gradually revealed as, sliver by sliver, piece by piece, the layers are peeled away from the painted backdrop.

PINTER AT THE PINTER Marking the 10th anniversary of the revered playwright’s death, Pinter at the Pinter features all Pinter’s short plays, alongside a selection of his poems and sketches. Pinter at the Pinter is an unparalleled event featuring the short plays written by the greatest British playwright of the 20th Century, in the theatre that bears his name. They have never been performed together in a season of this kind. Each play runs for a limited number of performances. The season will be presented in repertoire by a world-class cast, many of whom were Harold Pinter’s friends and frequent collaborators. The cast includes Keith Allen, Jessica Barden, Ron Cook, Phil Davies, Danny Dyer, Paapa Essiedu, Lee Evans, Martin Freeman, Rupert Graves, Tamsin Greig, Jane Horrocks, Celia Imrie, John Macmillan, Emma Naomi, Tracy Ann Oberman, Kate O’Flynn, Jonjo O’Neill, Abraham Popoola, Sir Antony Sher, John Simm, Hayley Squires, Maggie Steed, David Suchet, Meera Syal, Luke Thallon, Russell Tovey, Penelope Wilton and Nicholas Woodeson. Mark Rylance will make two special charity performances of Art, Truth and Politics, Pinter’s Nobel Prize Lecture, in aid of the Stop the War Coalition. Harold Pinter. Photo: Martin Rosenbaum. WATERMILL THEATRE’S TWELFTH NIGHT AT WILTON’S MUSIC HALL Following the success of its run at The Watermill and its UK and international tour last year, The Watermill Ensemble will revive Twelfth Night at Wilton’s Music Hall from 12 to 22 September. Renowned for its bold, progressive and collaborative approach to Shakespeare, The Watermill Ensemble re-imagines the play in the hedonistic 1920s, where prohibition is rife. Fused with innovative staging and actormusicianship, the radical spirit of Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald collides with the contemporary influence of Postmodern Jukebox to create a dizzying and beautiful version of Shakespeare’s perfect play. Twelfth Night is directed by Paul Hart and designed by Katie Lias. Sound design is by David Gregory, movement by Tom Jackson Greaves and musical direction by Ned Rudkins-Stow. Director, Paul Hart: ‘A jazz club seems the perfect setting for Twelfth Night, given the play's obsession with music, love and excess. Featuring live music performed by our multi-talented company, the soundtrack is 1920's influenced with a modern twist.’ Wilton’s is between Wapping and Whitechapel, close to the historic Tower of London and St Katherine Docks.
