First look at rehearsal images: Shopping and F***ing, Lyric Hammersmith

It's twenty years since the explosive premiere of Mark Ravenhill's black comedy Shopping and F***ing. Olivier Award-winning Sean Holmes directs the play which follows three disconnected young adults whose lives have been reduced to a series of transactions in an emotionally shrink wrapped world. You can catch it at the Lyric Hammersmith from 7 Oct to 5 November and in the meantime here are some rehearsal pics.

 

 


Production photos: Mark Rylance in Nice Fish and how to get a free ticket @nicefishtheplay

Didn't get a ticket to see Mark Rylance's Nice Fish when it comes to London from New York  in November? Fear not. First up the run at the Harold Pinter Theatre has been extended by three weeks to 11 February. But if you want a chance to nab a free ticket (in a private box) then come dressed as a fish or fisherman (with your fishing rod).  These tickets are available on a first come first served basis from 6pm on the night of the performance (1.30pm for matinees). One ticket per person so your friend/companion/lover/other half will have to dress up too.

Production photos: The Libertine with Dominic Cooper (and a monkey puppet)

It's currently enjoying a stint at the Theatre Royal Bath before transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket later this month but how excited are we about seeing Dominic Cooper in The Libertine? (I still remember him in his vest in Phedre.) And, of course it also stars Stan-fav Jasper Britton which is adding to the excitement. While we are patiently waiting, here are some production shots* - love the monkey puppet:

Production photos: Mike Bartlett's new play Wild, Hampstead Theatre

Very excited about seeing this one next week. Have always had a preference for Mike Bartlett's 'smaller' plays such as Cock, An Intervention and Bull rather than big production numbers like Earthquakes in London - although King Charles III is an exception to that. Wild has a cast of three and from these pictures looks like a fairly straightforward setting so it's already ticking a lot of boxes. It runs at the Hampstead Theatre until July 16.

Official production photos have arrived for the Old Vic's The Caretaker starring Timothy Spall, Daniel Mays and George MacKay. I saw it last week and and found it challenging and rewarding. Set is pretty amazing too:

Rehearsal photos: A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Lyric Hammersmith

It runs at the Lyric Hammersmith from February 19 to March 19 and the trailer featuring Jonathan is at the bottom of the post. Click on the thumbnails for bigger versions.

Rehearsal photos: Donmar Warehouse's Welcome Home, Captain Fox! (with the lovely Rory Keenan)

Looking forward to this one, it's a comedy based on a 1930's French play but in this version the action is moved to cold war era America. A soldier, missing presumed dead, returns home but is he really Captain Fox?  Lots of sitting and leaning going on in the rehearsal pics...but doesn't Rory Keenan look cute? Cast also includes Michelle Asante, Barnaby Kay, Katherine Kingsley, Trevor Laird, Sian Thomas, Danny Webb, Fenella Woolgar and Daniel York.

Welcome Home, Captain Fox! previews at the Donmar from Feb 18 and the first tranche of £10 Barclays Front Row tickets go on sale on Monday at 10am.
