The Starry MessengerHollywood star and multiple Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick makes his West End debut at Wyndham's Theatre opposite Elizabeth McGovern from Downton Abbey. The star of Ferris Bueller appears in a moving drama about a New York astronomer, written by Kenneth Lonergan, the Academy Award-winning writer of Manchester-By-The-Sea. The Starry Messenger introduces us to Mark Williams whose world implodes after a chance collision with a single mother. The stars appear to have aligned but when a catastrophic event turns everything upside down, Mark is forced to re-evaluate his life, his faith and his place in the universe.
