The final two productions to open at Hampstead Theatre in 2021 have been revealed. Marsha Norman's 'night, Mother and Alan Plater's Peggy for You will be revived at the Hampstead Theatre in winter 2021, starring Stockard Channing and Tamsin Greig respectively. 

Marsha Norman's 'night, Mother is a Pulitzer Prize-winning play that follows Thelma and Jessie, a mother and daughter whose relationship is shattered when secrets are finally revealed. After a Broadway premiere, 'night, Mother made its London debut at the Hampstead Theatre in 1985.

Stockard Channing will play Thelma Cates in 'night, Mother. In London, she has recently starred in Apologia at Trafalgar Studios, but is best known for playing Rizzo in Grease, as well as starring in The West Wing and The Business of Strangers.

Rebecca Night will play Jessie, returning to the Hampstead Theatre after starring in The Meeting and Prism. Roxana Silbert will direct 'night, Mother, with previews from 22 October, an opening night on 28 October and performances to 4 December.

Tamsin Greig will then play Peggy Ramsay in Alan Plater's comedy play Peggy For You. Richard Wilson will direct Peggy For You, which is inspired by the life of Plater's former agent Peggy Ramsay, who represented writers such as Alan Ayckbourn, J. B. Priestley and David Hare. Recently, Greig starred in Talking Heads at the Bridge Theatre and appeared as Lady Capulet in the National Theatre's film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.

The full Peggy For You cast is completed by Josh Finan, Trevor Fox, Danusia Samal and Jos Vantyler. The creative team includes design by James Cotterill, lighting design by Johanna Town and sound design by Tingying Dong. Peggy For You is at the Hampstead Theatre from 10 December, with an opening night on 17 December and performances to 29 Jan. 2022.

Upcoming shows at the Hampstead Theatre include The Memory of Water and Malindadzimu. Read more about the Hampstead's season here.
