Two men. Two lonely hotel rooms. An adjoining door…One of them is a killer… one of them wants to die… What could possibly go wrong?

The fourth production in his Plays at the Garrick season unites five-time Academy Award nomimee Sir Kenneth Branagh with Welsh wonderman Rob Brydon.

Directed and adapted by Sean Foley, this darkly hilarious adaptation of Francis Veberʼs classic French farce is now running at the Garrick Theatre, Charing Cross Road. Branagh and Brydon star in this comic tour-de-force alongside Claudie Blakley, Marcus Fraser, Mark Hadfield and Alex Macqueen.

Director Foley previously enjoyed huge success in the West End with The Play What I Wrote (another collaboration with Branagh) and was nominated for a Best Director Olivier Award for his work on The Ladykillers.

We’re delighted to bring you these images from the rehearsal room!
