As of February next year, David Suchet will have spent 50 years on stage. Whether he’s being directed on stage by Harold Pinter, or on screen as one of the most recognisable characters of a generation, he has been pretty much omnipresent and worked his way to being the ever-reliable actor he is today. Coinciding with his 50th anniversary on stage, he will perform in Jonathan Church’s acclaimed production of The Price, one of Arthur Miller’s plays lesser-known on this side of the pond. The piece transfers to the West End from its original run at Theatre Royal Bath.
London is in the midst of a mini-Arthur Miller season - this week will also see the opening of a new production of The American Clock at the Old Vic, directed by the American director Rachel Chavkin, while down the street at the Young Vic Marianne Elliott and Miranda Cromwell will co-direct Death of a Salesman in May.
