AgainstBen Whishaw, who has appeared as Q in the Bond films, in London Spy and The Hour and who won a BAFTA for the BBC adaptation of Richard II, returns to the Almeida following his acclaimed performance as Dionysos in Bakkhai. In Against, Christopher Shinn's gripping new drama set in Silicon Valley, he plays Luke, an ambitious aerospace billionaire who sets out to change the hi-tech landscape. A world premiere, this production is directed by former Royal Court boss Ian Rickson, who also directs Damian Lewis in Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? staged in the West End earlier this year.

About Almeida Theatre

Along with the Donmar Warehouse, the Almeida is the most critically praised theatre in Britain. After Jonathan Kent took over in 1990, it had 14 West End transfers in 12 years, and early booking for tickets became essential - by the time the reviews came out, the run was usually sold out.
