Sweet Charity at the Donmar

The story centres on Charity Hope Valentine, a dance hall hostess who’s struggling to find the love of her life in 1960s New York. But when she meets Oscar, a mild-mannered tax accountant, Charity starts to have faith in true love once again.

Sweet Charity will be directed Josie Rourke, who’s also the Donmar Warehouse’s Artistic Director, and it will be her final production at this venue. As part of her final farewell, she’s teaming up with world-renowned choreographer Wayne McGregor, who previously worked on Josie’s debut film, Mary Queen of Scots.

Since it’s Josie’s final show, all tickets for Friday performances from 26 April will be free to audience members who are under the age of 25 through the Sweet Fridays campaign. These tickets will be disrupted in a ballot system.

Sweet Charity will run at the Donmar Warehouse between 6 April – 8 June. Public sale tickets and ballot tickets go on sale on Thursday 21 February 2019.
