The Entertainer

Shane Richie will play Archie Rice in a brand new production of John Osborne‘s The Entertainer – chosen as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century by Michael Billington.

Directed by Sean O’Connor, this innovative adaptation will open here on 27 Aug, before touring the  UK until November. For the first time since its premiere in 1957, this classic play will also be given a vibrant new setting.

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.
