Why go and see it?

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

A family reunion. Time to pay your last disrespects.

Mad House

David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow, The Newsroom) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, All My Sons, Independence Day) return to the West End, in the world premiere of the bitingly funny new play 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 soon arrive, determined to work out how much money Dad actually has left and how they're getting their hands on it. 

This dark comedy 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, lighting design by Prema Mehta, sound design by Beth Duke for Autograph Sound and composition by Isobel Waller-Bridge. The cast also includes Hanako FootmanAkiya HenrySinéad Matthews, Charlie Oscar and Stephen Wight.

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