Producers David Richenthal, Fiery Angel, Gavin Kalin and David M. Milch have announced that Clive Owen, Lia Williams, Anna Gunn and Julian Glover will lead a rare West End revival of Tennessee Williams‘ rarely-staged drama, The Night Of The Iguana, which will play a strictly limited 12-week season at the Noël Coward Theatre from Saturday 6 July 2019.
Owen returns to the West End for the first time in 18 years to play the Rev. T. Lawrence Shannon.
The Night Of The Iguana will be directed by James Macdonald and designed by Rae Smith.
In the strange limbo of 1940, on a dilapidated hotel verandah perched high in a rainforest above the west coast of Mexico, a group of lost souls collide – a defrocked priest turned tourist guide, the grieving widow who runs the hotel, a family of jubilant Nazis… and an itinerant portrait artist with her 97 year old poet grandfather. The result is an epic battle between flesh and spirit, captivity and freedom, art and faith – heightened by the arrival of a tropical rain-storm.
