Events at Almeida Theatre

I Do - Almeida Theatre
The Best Man is practicing his last minute speech. The Bridesmaids are squeezing the bride into her dress. Mum and Dad are seeing each other for the first time in years. Grandma is dressing her husband whilst the groom’s brother is getting frisky with the maid of honour. Meanwhile, the Groom is frozen... Love and marriage collide in this site-specific tour through six hotel rooms; a funny, vivid and often moving exploration of life dressed (and undressed) in all its finery, seen through the lens of an everyday family wedding.
King Charles III - Almeida Theatre
The Queen is dead: after a lifetime of waiting, the prince ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule? Mike Bartlett’s controversial new play explores the people beneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous family.
1984 - Almeida Theatre
April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is always watching. Orwell’s ideas have become our ideas; his fiction is often said to be our reality. The “definitive book of the 20th century” (The Guardian) is re-examined in a radical new staging exploring surveillance, identity and why Orwell’s vision of the future is as relevant now as ever.
Ghosts - Almeida Theatre
Helene Alving has spent her life suspended in an emotional void after the death of her cruel but outwardly charming husband. She is determined to escape the ghosts of her past by telling her son, Oswald, the truth about his father. But on his return from his life as a painter in France, Oswald reveals how he has already inherited the legacy of Alving’s dissolute life.
