The Upstart Crow
Ben Elton’s popular historical comedy is back in the West End for a strictly limited 10-week season. The Upstart Crow features David Mitchell as William Shakespeare in a hilarious farce that is too funny to miss!
The Upstart Crow is written by Ben Elton and is a standalone work, rather than simply an adaptation of the hit sitcom, Upstart Crow. The show follows William Shakespeare in the earlier stages of his writing career. Surrounded by a zany mob of historical characters, he has no trouble finding inspiration for his plays, but he is desperate for hit. He feels his latest work, 'King Lear', may prove to be just that.
Gemma Whelan will be back as Kate, following rave reviews for her performance in the original 2020 run. The other cast has not yet been announced but it is expected to be a fine showcase of British comedy talent.
The Upstart Crow was described by The Guardian in 2020 as "The most consistently funny comedy since One Man Two Guvnors". Its return to the West End in 2022 is sure to be a comedy event that will please all friends, Romans and countrymen. Be sure to book The Upstart Crow tickets today.
