John Osborne’s The Entertainer

Following a successful opening in Leicester, Sean O’Connor’s inventive new production of The Entertainer heads out on a UK tour this autumn, heading to the Belgrade Theatre 15-19 October.

Shane Richie stars alongside Sara Crowe and Diana Vickers in this landmark, state-of-the-nation play, named by Michael Billington as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century.

This bold retelling is the first production of the play to relocate the action of the story from its original 1950s context, setting it in the early 1980s against the backdrop of the Falklands War and the rise of alternative comedy.
