The White CarnationDescribed as "a neglected little treasure" by Dominic Cavendish in the Daily Telegraph, R. C. Sherriff's supernatural drama, The White Carnation, is a ghostly tale of one man's chance to do things differently. This rediscovery marks the first production since its premiere, starring Sir Ralph Richardson, in 1953. The play transfers to Jermyn Street Theatre following a critically acclaimed and sold out run at the Finborough Theatre, opening on 4th February for a limited three week run. Most of the original cast will be transferring with the production including acclaimed newcomer Daisy Boulton and Benjamin Whitrow (Mr. Bennett in BBC's Pride and Prejudice).

 

About Jermyn Street Theatre

A sweet little old theatre in the style of a Victorian music hall, the Jermyn Street Theatre is best enjoyed around Christmas when its location opposite Fortnum's brings well-dressed folk from the Home Counties into the marvellous old building to watch Sweeney Todd, Oliver and other period pantos.
