Autumn season now on sale

Hampstead Theatre moves into its third year under the artistic leadership of Edward Hall with a new season of work from some of the UK’s most outstanding writers, directors and performers.

The season will feature two World Premieres and a rare revival of David Hare’s The Judas Kiss, a fascinating insight into Oscar Wilde’s relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas; Hampstead’s commission of Howard Brenton’s 55 Days, a vivid account of the one of the most tumultuous periods of English history and Old Money, a new play by rising new voice Sarah Wooley, starring Maureen Lipman and Tracy-Ann Oberman.

Edward Hall said ‘After a sell out summer it is a delight to be able to announce three major events here at Hampstead as part of our new autumn season. These productions will give our audiences a powerful mix of the new and the known produced by some of our greatest writers, actors and directors. An exhilarating programme, once again making use of our versatile and unique auditorium.’

55 DAYS
By Howard Brenton
Directed by Howard Davies
18 October – 24 November

1648. The army occupies London. Parliament votes not to put the imprisoned King on trial, so the army moves against Westminster and the only military coup in English history takes place. But the army leadership remains divided: Cromwell would prefer a compromise with the King, but the King will not compromise.

A new nation must therefore be forged…and over 55 days, an entirely new world is created.

Cast to be confirmed.
