The Red LionFollowing a sell-out run at Live Theatre in Newcastle, Patrick Marber's drama The Red Lion transfers to Trafalgar Studios. The show is about the competitive nature of semi-professional football, looking at different generations of football fans. Stephen Tompkinson and John Bowler reprise their roles as the wheeler dealer manager and locker room staff legend. The pair clash over the future of the club's new star player, who is played by Dean Bone. Max Roberts directs the work with design by Patrick Connellan.

 

About Trafalgar Studios

The Trafalgar Studios are two venues housed within what was London's Whitehall Theatre. The building itself is Grade II listed, and is an excellent example of simple, unadorned Art Deco style. The interior, however, is spectacular, with complex, cubist designs and sweeping curves of moulding and ironwork. More about Trafalgar Studios
