Icons of the stage and screen David Harbour and Bill Pullman will star in the world première of Theresa Rebeck’s dark and funny new play Mad House. The show opens on 26 June at the Ambassadors Theatre and will run for a limited season until 4 September.
Theresa Rebeck said today, “There are those projects when the stars simply align, and to see David and Bill together on stage is beyond my wildest dreams. I’m very much looking forward to being back in the rehearsal room with Moritz as we bring the play to production here in London.”
David Harbour added, “So excited to return to the London stage with Theresa’s blistering new dark comedy. It features two of my favourite things: the abyss of madness that lies at the pit of every family as they stare blankly, incomprehensively into the nature of our fleeting existence, and real estate.”
The production reunites Rebeck and von Stuelpnagel following their collaborations on Bernhardt/Hamlet and Seared. Theresa Rebeck is a prolific and widely produced playwright, whose work has been staged across the globe. The show is directed by Tony Award-nominated Moritz von Stuelpnagel, whose previous work on Broadway includes Bernhardt/Hamlet, Present Laughter and Hand to God.
