Upstart CrowDavid Mitchell makes his West End debut in Ben Elton's stage adaptation of the critically acclaimed BBC TV sitcom, Upstart Crow as the all-new comedy - written especially for the stage - comes to the Gielgud Theatre. Mitchell puts on the bald wig and bardish coddling pouch in his iconic characterisation of Will Shakespeare, starring alongside Gemma Whelan (a familiar face from Game of Thrones and as Anne Lister's sister Marian in Gentleman Jack) who plays Will's friend and housekeeper, the sweet and fragrant Kate. They are joined by a troupe of players as Will desperately fries to come up with a brilliant new plot. Olivier award-winner Sean Foley (The Ladykillers, Jeeves and Wooster and The Miser) directs.

 

About Gielgud Theatre

From the outside, the Gielgud Theatre is an impressive sight, towering four storeys over Shaftesbury Avenue, its height further emphasized by the turret on top. The interior is also magnificent, with richly-decorated pillars supporting the boxes and lavish Baroque ornamentation. Built in 1906 and known as the Globe Theatre for most of the 20th century, it was renamed after the great actor Sir John Gielgud in 1994. More about Gielgud Theatre
