The Ruling ClassAtonement actor James McAvoy who played a highly acclaimed Macbeth in an all-Scottish production here two years ago, returns to Jamie Lloyd's Traf Transformed season at Trafalgar Studio to play Jack, a possible paranoid schizophrenic with a Messiah complex. The Ruling Class, Peter Barnes' satirical play centres on Jack, recently appointed the 14th Earl of Gurney, who finds himself in the midst of a familial power struggle. The combination of McAvoy, Lloyd and a ferocious mix of hilarity and horror makes this one of the hottest tickets at the start of the London theatre season in 2015.

 

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
