Great Britain | Theatre Royal Haymarket | must end January 10th

Richard Bean’s Great Britain will have its final performance at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on 10 January 2015 as previously announced.   With a cast led by Lucy Punch as news editor Paige Britain and Robert Glenister as editor Wilson Tikkel.  Great Britain received its world premiere at the National Theatre in June this year.

Richard Bean’s fast and furious new play is an anarchic and foul-mouthed satire about the press, the police and the political establishment.  Paige Britain is the ambitious young news editor of The Free Press, a tabloid newspaper locked in a never-ending battle for more readers.
