"Please don’t be charmed, he’s not a lovable rogue...Loosely based on Molière’s tragicomedy 'Don Juan', this savagely funny and filthy modern update transports the action to contemporary London and follows the final adventures of its debauched protagonist – a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure."
Adrian Scarborough was last on stage as The Fool in Sam Mendes’ production of King Lear at the National Theatre where his many credits also include After the Dance, The Habit of Art, Time and the Conways, Henry IV Parts 1 & 2, The False Servant, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, The David Hare Trilogy, The Day I Stood Still and The Wind in the Willows. In the West End his credits include Betty Blue Eyes and Humble Boy.
Gawn Grainger was most recently on stage in The Entertainer for the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company at the Garrick Theatre. His other theatre credits include The Cherry Orchard at the Young Vic, Macbeth at Shakespeare’s Globe and The Recruiting Officer at the Donmar Warehouse as well as Onassis, Absolutely Perhaps and The Crucible all in the West End.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
