Love In Idleness: show of the week - save over £30

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Brilliant" FINANCIAL TIMES

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "'Movingly truthful... This sparkling and reminted production" WHATSONSTAGE

Love in Idleness stars the Olivier Award winning Eve Best (A Moon for the Misbegotten, Hedda Gabler and Nurse Jackie), Anthony Head (Six Degrees of Separation, Merlin and Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and Edward Bluemel (The Halcyon).

Following a sold out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Terence Rattigan's brilliant comedy Love in Idleness transfers to the Apollo Theatre for 50 performances only.

This brand new production marks Trevor Nunn's exciting return to Rattigan's work, following the huge success of Flare Path.

Returning from Canada after a four-year absence during the war, eighteen-year-old Michael is full of youthful ideology and leftist leanings. But he is shocked to find his widowed mother Olivia is now the mistress of cabinet minister Sir John Fletcher, enjoying a comfortable society life. When Michael and John clash, sparks fly and relationships are tested as everyone learns some difficult lessons in love.

Mindhorn Competition

Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show Mindhorn, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally “see the truth”. Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).

Directed by Sean Foley, and starring Julian Barratt, Simon Farnaby, Essie Davis, Russell Tovey, Andrea Riseborough, Jessica Barden, Harriet Walter and Steve Coogan, MINDHORN is British comedy at its best.

Exciting news! Andy Murray to play on Tuesday 20 June at the Aegon Championships

Record five-time champion Andy Murray will launch the defence of his Aegon Championships title on Tuesday June 20 at The Queen’s Club, Tournament Director Stephen Farrow has announced.

Murray, who returned to action with a 7-5, 7-5 win over Gilles Muller in Monte Carlo today, will play the clay court season before arriving on the grass at The Queen’s Club, where he has won the title in 2009, ’11, ’13, ’15 and ’16. In 2013 and 2016, he also went on to win the Wimbledon title.

The World No.1 will have his work cut out against one of the strongest line-ups ever assembled at the Aegon Championships. The full entry list will be released in the second week of May, but the following players have already confirmed they will play the event, along with Murray, from June 19-25:

·         Rafael Nadal

·         Stan Wawrinka

·         Milos Raonic

·         Grigor Dimitrov

·         Nick Kyrgios

·         Juan Martin del Potro

·         Jamie Murray.

Earlier this year, Murray made a career-commitment to play in the Aegon Championships, and the BBC announced that they will cover the tournament until at least 2024.

The Aegon Championships is expanding its Centre Court capacity by more than 30% for 2017 and has sold more than 9,000 tickets than ever before. Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June are almost completely sold out, but there is still limited availability on the other days of the tournament.

Last year, the Aegon Championships was voted ATP-500 Tournament of the Year by the players - the fourth successive year that the event has received a tournament of the year award.

European Premiere of Working comes to Southwark Playhouse

Gillian Bevan (Teachers, Holby City), Dean Chisnall (Blood Brothers), Krysten Cummings (Rent), Siubhan Harrison (Guys and Dolls), Peter Polycarpou (Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Oaklahoma) and Liam Tamne Rocky Horror Picture Show)  lead the cast of the European Premiere of WORKING, directed by Luke Sheppard, with choreography by Fabian Aloise which opens at Southwark Playhouse on 2 June 2017 for a limited seaon

WORKING is the extraordinary genre-defining musical from Grammy and Academy Award-winner 
Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell) based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with
the American workforce: Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel
About What They Do.

The show has been adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso, the
creators of Godspell and Rags, with additional contributions by Gordon Greenberg.

This highly original and universal portrait of the American workday is told from the perspective of
those that the world so often overlooks – the schoolteacher, the housewife, the fireman and the
waitress amongst many – whose daily grind and aspirations reflect the truths of the people that
make up a nation.

WORKING employs a range of musical styles and genres from contributing
composers, including five-time Grammy Award-winner James Taylor and Pulitzer Prize-winner Lin-
Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, In The Heights) as well as Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Mary Rodgers
& Susan Birkenhead.
