Jermyn Street Theatre’s FARM HALL announces West End transfer

FARM HALL, the best-selling show in the history of Jermyn Street Theatre, where it ran in Spring 2023, will transfer to Theatre Royal Haymarket in London’s West End for 30 performances only from 7 to 31 August 2024.

Based on an extraordinary true story, FARM HALL is written by Katherine Moar  and directed by Stephen Unwin.

It is Summer 1945: Hitler is dead, but the war in the Pacific rages on. The Allies have detained six of Germany’s leading nuclear scientists – including three Nobel Prize winners – at Farm Hall, a country house just outside Cambridge. They entertain themselves with some redacted newspapers, a broken piano and a copy of Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit. But their tranquil summer is shattered by the news that the Americans have succeeded where the Germans failed. The United States has not only built an atom bomb, but has used one against Japan. Unbeknownst to the scientists, during their stay, every inch of Farm Hall was bugged and their every action recorded. This play is inspired by the true events that took place at Farm Hall between July 1945 and January 1946.

The ensemble cast for the FARM HALL West End transfer includes: David Yelland (The Crown, Chariots of Fire, Poirot) as Max Von Laue; Alan Cox (Say My Name, Mrs DallowayHousewife, 49) as Werner Heisenberg; Daniel Boyd (On Chesil Beach, Tiger House) as Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker; Forbes Masson (EastEnders, Catastrophe) as Otto Hahn; Julius D’Silva (The Crown, The Ten Commandments) as Kurt Diebner; and Archie Backhouse as Erich Bagge.

The creative team includes: Designed by Ceci Calf, Lighting by Ben Ormerod, Sound by John Leonard, and Casting by Ginny Schiller.

Len Blavatnik and Danny Cohen for Access Entertainment present the Jermyn Street Theatre production of FARM HALL.
