The Entertainer dates confirmed at Old Vic 23 Feb - 19 May 2007

Dates have now been confirmed for John Osborne's The Entertainer , opening at the Old Vic 7 March 2007, following previews from 23 Feb - booking to 19 May 2007 .

Directed by Sean Holmes and designed by Anthony Lamble, the play features Robert Lindsay (Archie Rice) and Pam Ferris (Archie's wife).

Archie Rice, a music-hall performer in an age when music halls had all but disappeared. Driven by dreams of stardom and a desperation to equal his father's success, Archie finds himself a man out of his time - a selfish, deceitful has-been, headlining a tacky revue in a rundown seaside town. Family tensions rise to a boil as he shamelessly cheats on his wife and tricks his dying father into financing one last revue. But throughout it all, Archie jigs and jabbers before his ever-diminishing audience and does whatever it takes to keep the show going.
