Wallace Shawn stars in the world premiere of his own play Evening At The Talk House at the National Theatre.

The latest play from the writer of The Fever, Evening At The Talk House tells the story of a reunion at the almost legendary club The Talk House. Still presided over by the kindly Nellie, there’s the same genteel atmosphere, familiar drinks and special snacks. The playwright, the composer, the actress. The former television star brutally beaten up. The possibility of a pleasant night.

Playwright Shawn’s acting credits include Clueless, The Good Wife and The Princess Bride, but he is also well known for lending his voice to much-loved animated characters including Rex in the Toy Story films.

Shawn is joined by a cast that also includes Sinead Matthews (Pests, Royal Court), Anna Calder-Marshall (Temple, Donmar Warehouse) and Simon Shepherd (Hay Fever, West End).
