In a pub in South London ‘The Firm’ reunite for the first time in twelve years. Back in their misspent youth they were a notorious criminal gang; these days they’re older, wiser, and their lives have changed beyond recognition. But when an uninvited guest turns up to the party with an intriguing proposition and an explosive secret it’s clear they might be tempted to try their hands at one last job. Will they escape their past unscathed?

Roy Williams’ gripping new play is a tale of growing up, lifelong loyalties and how sometimes, it is possible to choose your own family.

Multi-award winning playwright Roy Williams returns following Wildefire on the Main Stage in 2014. His other theatre credits include Sucker Punch (Royal Court), Sing Yer Heart Out For The Lads (National Theatre) and Soul (Hackney Empire/Royal Derngate). 

Denis Lawson returns to Hampstead following sell-out hit The Meeting, last year. Other directing credits include Little Malcolm And His Struggle Against The Eunuchs starring Ewan McGregor (Hampstead Theatre/West End) and The Anniversary starring Sheila Hancock (West End).

The Firm has been kindly supported by the Godwin family.
