About The Southbury Child

Alex Jennings stars in the world premiere of Stephen Beresford’s The Southbury Child play at the Bridge Theatre. The Southbury Child tickets are available on London Theatre now.

The Southbury Child is a new play, so you'll have to book tickets to find out what happens. However audiences can expect a dark comic that explores the connections between families, religions and social identities. The play centres on David Highland, a flashy vicar who doesn’t always behave in the eyes of the Lord. However, his parish remain loyal to him, thanks to his unexpected successful charm.

It’s all called into question though when he deals with a bereaved local and his opinions vary massively from the local community. Soon enough, David is isolated from all those he considers acquaintances and his social life falls apart. Can David rescue his position in the town and society at large?

The three-time Olivier-winning actor Alex Jennings takes the charge at the Bridge Theatre for the first time as David Highland. He’s previously won Oliviers for starring in My Fair Lady, Peer Gynt and Too Clever by Half. Recently, he starred in Hansard at the National Theatre and played Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Now, he’ll play a troubled vicar in Stephen Beresford’s new play.

Stephen Beresford writes The Southbury Child in London. Beresford is best known for the 2014 film, Pride, a LGBTQ+-positive film based on the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign. To date, Beresford’s plays include The Last of the Haussmans, Fanny and Alexander and Three Kings.

Witty, Moving, Great acting

See it if you like beautifully written smart plays with rich, complicated characters dealing with questions of faith, conviction, conscience and loss

Don’t see it if you're looking for a comedy or lighter fare. This play is genuinely laugh-out-loud funny at times, but is also heartbreaking and unsettling.
