About the Show Less...

Broadway of the 1940s, inhabited by gamblers, nightclub performers and members of the Salvation Army in search of sinners to cure. Read More >

Set in New York, a group of gamblers gathers for “The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York”, but Nathan Detroit needs $1,000 to set the game up. As any right thinking gambler would do in that situation, he bets Sky Masterson $1,000 that he can’t get Salvation Army prude Sarah Brown to accompany him to Havana. On top of his gambling problems, Detroit also has to deal with the affections of the amorous Miss Adelaide, who is trying to make him settle down.

Based on the stories by Damon Runyon, Guys And Dolls is the first Donmar Warehouse production not to be staged at the Donmar Warehouse and is directed by Donmar Artistic Director Michael Grandage.
