Entertain us

Its 1982 and Archie Rice is a washed-up entertainer playing a summer season. As his soldier son sails with the Task Force to liberate the Falklands, his daughter Jean returns from campaigning against the war and Archie’s professional and personal lives collide with devastating consequences.

Shane Richie takes on the role memorably created on stage and screen by Laurence Olivier, alongside Diana Vickers and the Olivier award-winning Sara Crowe. For the first time since its premiere in 1957, John Osborne’s classic ‘The Entertainer’ is given a vibrant new setting and an electric new vision in Sean O’Conner’s exciting production.

From the writer of Look Back in Anger, ‘The Entertainer’ was chosen as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century by Michael Billington, chief theatre critic of the Guardian. Coming to Theatre Severn with performances from Monday 18 to Saturday 23 November at 2.30pm and 7.30pm with ticket prices from £19.50.
