Richard Bean: A Career in Pictures

Award-winning playwright Richard Bean returns to Hampstead Theatre with his latest play Kiss MeRichard returns to Hampstead following his 2007 hit In The Club, which went on to a successful UK tour. 

His numerous West End and international hits include The Nap (2016), Made In Dagenham (2014), Great Britain (2014), Pitcairn (2014), The Heretic (2011), The Big Fellah (2010), England People Very Nice (2009), Harvest (2005), The Mentalists (2002, revived in the West End 2015) and Toast (1999, revived at Rose Theatre Kingston 2016).

Arguably his most successful work to date is One Man, Two Guvnors, which opened at the National Theatre in 2011. It garnered great critical acclaim, and went on to receive three UK tours, sell-out runs in both the West End and on Broadway, and an international tour of Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand. It won the 2011 Evening Standard Award for Best New Play, and James Corden received Best Lead Actor In A Play at the 2012 Tony Awards for his role in the production. 

Kiss Me opens Downstairs on 27 November – 3 December. Tickets £10 / £12.
