David Suchet delivers a comic tour de force as a silver-tongued 90 year old furniture dealer in Arthur Miller’s ‘masterpiece’ (Daily Telegraph), The Price.
Two brothers , Victor and Walter Franz, one a New York cop nearing retirement, the other a successful surgeon meet for the first time in sixteen years to sell their family furniture stored in the attic of a condemned New York brownstone . Revelation follows stunning revelation as each brother realises the price they have paid for heart breaking decisions made decades earlier.
Overseeing the psychological battlefield is the wily veteran appraiser, Gregory Solomon , who has his own demons to conquer as well as securing the best possible price for the Franz family possessions.
David Suchet, revisiting the work of Arthur Miller after his legendary award-winning performance in All My Sons, plays Gregory Solomon. He is joined by Brendan Coyle (Mr Bates in Downton Abbey) , Adrian Lukis and Sara Stewart who plays Esther Franz, Victor’s wife.
This fifty anniversary production of Arthur Miller’s richly affecting play – which, like his better known works, mines his preoccupation with the pleasures and perils of the American Dream - transfers from a sell-out run at the Theatre Royal Bath where it was hugely acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.
Noël Coward Theatre
From 2 February
Tickets from £71 with best availability from April
Margo Channing. Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve…don’t you…?

BAFTA Award-winner Monica Dolan will join the cast in the role of Karen, alongside Julian Ovenden as Bill, Sheila Reid as Birdie and Rhashan Stone as Lloyd. Further casting to be announced.
Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.
