David Harbour and Bill Pullman are to star in the world premiere of Theresa Rebeck’s new play Mad House.
Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, the dark comedy opens on 26 June at the Ambassadors Theatre, with previews from 15 June, and runs until 4 September. Tickets are on sale now here.
The production reunites Rebeck and von Stuelpnagel following their collaborations on Bernhardt/Hamlet and Seared.
The full cast features Hanako Footman, Akiya Henry, Sinead Matthews, Charlie Oscar and Stephen Wight.
A family reunion. Time to pay your last disrespects.
In rural Pennsylvania, Michael has returned to his childhood home to look after his dying father. His siblings Ned and Pam soon arrive, determined to work out how much money Dad actually has left and how they’re getting their hands on it.
Theresa Rebeck said: “There are those projects when the stars simply align, and to see David and Bill together on stage is beyond my wildest dreams. I’m very much looking forward to being back in the rehearsal room with Moritz as we bring the play to production here in London.”
David Harbour added: “So excited to return to the London stage with Theresa’s blistering new dark comedy. It features two of my favourite things: the abyss of madness that lies at the pit of every family as they stare blankly, incomprehensively into the nature of our fleeting existence, and real estate.”
