A Life in the Theatre Tickets

Apollo TheatreLondon

This hilarious and poignant play is the story of two actors, stage veteran 'Robert' (Patrick Stewart) and aspiring young newcomer 'John' (Joshua Jackson). Set both on stage and behind the scenes in a fading small town rep, the piece follows their friendship and their rivalry as they battle with the cruel uncertainties of their profession.

Inspired by Mamet's early backstage experiences and his own brief career as an actor, this, acutely observed, bittersweet comedy delivers all the absurdity, the joy and the heartache of a life in the theatre.
