Production images released for Mike Bartlett’s ‘Scandaltown’ at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre!

Production images have been released for the world premiere of Mike Bartlett’s irreverent new satire, Scandaltown, which opens at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre tomorrow night (14 April) and runs until Saturday 14 May 2022.

Directed by Artistic Director Rachel O’Riordan, Scandaltown brings together a 12-strong cast including: Rachael Stirling as Lady Susan Climber; Richard Goulding as Matt Eton; Emma Cunniffe as Aunty Julie and Rebecca De Souza; Cecilia Appiah as Phoebe Virtue; Matthew Broome as Jack Virtue; Henry Everett as Peter Media OBE and Carson; Luke Hornsby as Freddie Peripheral; Thomas Josling as Tom Double-Budget; Aysha Kala as Hannah Tweetwell; Annette McLaughlin as Rosalind Double-Budget; Ami Okumura Jones as Jenny Hood; and Chukwuma Omambala as Sir Dennis Hedge and Kevin the Postman.

Mike Bartlett’s hilarious and irreverent new comedy uncovers a decadent world of sex, hypocrisy, parties and power. 

It’s the event of the season and the fame–hungry have come to play, but not all is what it seems when a web of lies and mishaps risk exposing the reputation of London’s elite.

Artistic Director Rachel O’Riordan directs this Restoration comedy for the 21st Century, celebrating a spectacular return to the theatre with a 12-strong ensemble, an exquisite score and the finest couture.

A party that will no doubt have all of London talking.

Welcome to #Scandaltown.
