Don Juan in Soho Tickets, The Wyndham's Theatre

David Tennant returns to the West End in a new production of Patrick Marber's Don Juan in Soho which runs at the Wyndham's Theatre in 2017, directed by the author.

Based on Moliere’s 1665 comedy Dom Juan or The Feast with the Statue, Marber relocates the play to the heart of modern day Soho with Tennant playing the role of sex-addict Don Juan.

The play had its London premiere at the Donmar Warehouse in central London where it ran from 6 December 2006 to 10 February 2007, starring Rhys Ifans and directed by Michael Grandage. The production was praised by critics: "a ravishing, thoroughly modern make-over for the worst sex-addict in theatrical history" (Standard); "The writing is taut and sharp" (Independent); "Savagely funny, disturbingly dark and disgracefully sexy" (Telegraph).

Moliere’s farcical, tragic, anarchic original of 1665 is relocated to modern day Soho: swank, new hotels and festering, old clip joints, crackheads in alleys and cokeheads in clubs. The destitute, the delirious, the broken and the brazen, the hustlers and hoorays, the media movers and merciless whores - all packed in to one seething square mile. Don Juan - the infamous amoral hedonist in a society entranced by sensation.
