‘A palpable hit’ for Ian McKellen ★★★★★ Telegraph

‘The secret of his success is not lofty knightliness but spry mateyness’

The Telegraph

★★★★★

‘One of the great actors of his age up close in a 200-seater, giving us something between his life story, an acting masterclass and a collection of party pieces…

a Shakespeare-fest and a joy.’

The Times

★★★★

It’s not too late to see Ian McKellen, one of the greatest actors of our time (and Gandalf himself), live on stage at Park Theatre in his intimate one-man show: Shakespeare, Tolkien, Others & You.

There are still a handful of tickets left for our special Gala Performance on Sun 9 July at 7.30pm. Click here to check availability. You’ll be served wine, canapes and have a chance to mingle with Sir Ian himself at the post show reception. A truly spectacular way to spend a summer evening.

Don’t forget there are a limited number of £10 day seats released online and via phone only at 10am every day for that day’s performances. You’ll have to be quick as these are super limited – good luck!

The View From Nowhere ★★★★ ‘compelling’

‘A thought provoking examination of clashing egos and conflicted interests… an unapologetically cerebral production’ 
The Stage

‘heartfelt critique of the power of corporations in the world of scientific research’
British Theatre.com

The first Park90 show of our Jul – Dec season is certainly one to fire up the grey matter cells and provoke some post-show discussion. This is an invitation to both the organic-food-loving-earth-warriors and those who accept scientific findings as indisputable fact to let us know which side of the fence you fall on!

Prez is a brilliant biochemist. His experiments show a leading herbicide is carcinogenic. He has an existential fight against entrenched interests on his hands – not helped by the fact that he wears dreadlocks, dresses like David Bowie, and carries a chip on his shoulder as big as the sink estate he grew up on. In his heart he knows he’s right, but can he prove it?

Hamlet

PARK90

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Simon Evans

This is Hamlet stripped to its core and played by three members of one family: Gyles Brandreth, Benet Brandreth, Kosha Engler – father, son and wife. A family gathering, haunted, claustrophobic, intense.

With a running time of 90 minutes, this Hamlet blasts through our expectations of a familiar text offering a unique take on Shakespeare’s most famous play, performed by a unique cast.
