'The play of the year'
Time Out

'Epic, exhilarating, exceptional'
Daily Telegraph

Tiananmen Square, 1989. As tanks roll through Beijing and soldiers hammer on his hotel door, Joe - a young American photojournalist - captures a piece of history. When a cryptic message is left in a Beijing newspaper more than 20 years later, Joe is driven to discover the truth behind the unknown hero he captured on film. Who was he? What happened to him? And could he still be alive?

Chimerica is a 'stunning new play' (Sunday Times) by Lucy Kirkwood (NSFW, Royal Court), with 'breakneck direction' (Daily Express) by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Royal Court and West End). This provocative new play is a 'triumph of storytelling' (Time Out), which examines the changing fortunes of two countries whose futures will come to define our own. Don't miss your last chance to see the must-see play of the year. Book now.


There will be a Touch Tour at 6pm on 7 October, prior to the Audio Described performance at 7.30pm.

Autistic Spectrum and those with Sensory and Communication difficulties

The Ambassador Theatre group know that communication is key.

We want all our patrons to have a good experience while in our theatres, so we now have a visual tool for parents and companions to use with children and adults on the autistic spectrum and/or with Sensory and Communication difficulties.

We have been researching the benefits of using visual stories and would like to offer a visual story for your visit to The Harold Pinter Theatre. We know some of our patrons find social situations difficult and we understand that we are all unique.

We are currently experiencing intermittent problems with our hearing enhancement system, please contact the venue directly ahead of your visit, or arrive at least 30 minutes prior to curtain.
