Why go and see it?

Two Hollywood stars. One gripping and darkly comic new play.

A family reunion. Time to pay your last disrespects.

Production shot

David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow, The Newsroom) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, All My Sons, Independence Day) return to the West End, alongside Hanako FootmanAkiya HenrySinead MatthewsCharlie Oscar and Stephen Wight in the world premiere of Mad House.

There are those projects when the stars simply align, and to see David and Bill together on stage is beyond my wildest dreams
- Theresa Rebeck, writer

In rural Pennsylvania, Michael (David Harbour) has returned to his childhood home to look after his dying father, Daniel (Bill Pullman). His siblings Nedward (Stephen Wight) and Pam (Sinead Matthews) soon arrive, determined to work out how much money Dad actually has left and how they're getting their hands on it.

This dark and funny new play from Theresa Rebeck (Seminar, Smash, Bernhardt/Hamlet) is directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Hand to God, Present Laughter), with set design by Frankie Bradshaw, costume design by Tilly Grimes, composition by Isobel Waller-Bridge and Sound Design by Beth Duke for Autograph Sound.

Contains discussion of death, mental illness and self-harm, transphobic and racist language, sexual content and swearing.
