Clive Owen And Anna Gunn To Star In Tennesse Williams' THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA in the West End

Clive Owen And Anna Gunn To Star In Tennesse Williams' THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA in the West End

Clive Owen returns to the West End for the first time in 18 years to play the Rev. T. Lawrence Shannon in THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA, in a new production directed by James Macdonald.

Golden Globe-winner Owen (Closer, Children of Men) will be joined by Lia Williams (The Crown, Mary Stuart) as Hannah Jelkes, Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) as Maxine Faulk and Julian Glover (Game of Thrones) as Nonno.

The Night Of The Iguana will be directed by James Macdonald, (whose West End credits include the acclaimed recent production of Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf, The Father and The Changing Room) and will be designed by Tony, Olivier and OBIE-award winning Rae Smith.

It will begin performances at the Noël Coward Theatre on Saturday 6 July (Press Night: Tuesday 16 July at 7:00pm) and play a strictly limited 12-week season.

Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, 5 February at www.iguanawestend.com

In the strange limbo of 1940, on a dilapidated hotel verandah perched high in a rainforest above the west coast of Mexico, a group of lost souls collide - a defrocked priest turned tourist guide, the grieving widow who runs the hotel, a family of jubilant Nazis... and an itinerant portrait artist with her 97 year old poet grandfather. The result is an epic battle between flesh and spirit, captivity and freedom, art and faith - heightened by the arrival of a tropical rain-storm.

Further casting to be announced.

The Night Of The Iguana is produced by David Richenthal, Fiery Angel, Gavin Kalin and David M. Milch.
