Further casting was announced this afternoon for Everything I Ever Wanted To Tell My Daughter About Men. The new black comedy will play at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse on Thursday 20 February. Written by actor and writer Lorien Haynes and directed by Tara Fitzgerald, Everything I Ever Wanted To Tell My Daughter About Men follows one woman’s relationship history backwards. Charting her experiences through sexual assault, teenage pregnancy and addiction, the play examines the impact on her relationships in adult life.

This night of theatre is presented in associating with civil rights and women and girls charities RISE and The Circle, and all profits will go towards supporting survivors of sexual violence. Nobel-Prize nominee and founder of RISE, Amanda Nguyen, will introduce the evening. The cast includes Saffron Burrows (You, Mozart In The Jungle), Oliver Chris (One Man, Two Guvnors), Enzo Cilenti (In The Loop, Guardians Of The Galaxy), Matthew Cooke (Deliver Us From Evil), Charlie Field (Poldark), Jonathan Firth, (Middlemarch, Victoria & Albert), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Joe Sims (Broadchurch), Belinda Stewart-Wilson (The Inbetweeners), and Lorien Haynes who wrote the piece.

Tickets for A Doll’s House at the Playhouse Theatre went on sale this morning. Featuring the fantastic Jessica Chastain, this marks the third and final instalment of Jamie Lloyd’s residency at the Playhouse, which also includes Emilia Clarke in The Seagull and James McAvoy in Cyrano De Bergerac – lucky London pulling in all these big-screen stars!

Henrik Ibsen’s 19th-century drama is given a makeover by Irish Playwright Frank McGuinness. No word yet on when the play will be set, but it promises a radical new production and if Jamie’s two recent productions are anything to go by, it may be dragging an old classic into the modern world! Keep your eyes peeled for further casting and more details and of course, grab your tickets before they disappear!

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
