Details

Award-winning actor and director John Malkovich makes his London theatre directing debut in this English speaking premiere of Zach Helm’s gripping play Good Canary. Malkovich’s previous productions of the play enjoyed sell-out performances in Mexico City and Paris, where it was nominated for six French Moliere Awards, winning for Best Director and Best Design.

Following rave reviews for his first novel, Jack is on the verge of signing a multi-million-dollar deal with a leading publisher. With his wife Annie struggling with addiction and mental illness, will she cope with the public scrutiny that comes with success?

Set in New York, this hard-hitting and darkly witty play explores the spiral of self-destruction and the cost of creativity.

Californian writer Zach Helm has spent years honing his craft in Hollywood and establishing himself as one of the most interesting and promising writers and directors of his generation. His work includes Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, Stranger Than Fiction starring Will Ferrell and Dustin Hoffman, and the forthcoming Jumanji.

Oscar Award nominee John Malkovich’s extensive film career includes Places in the Heart, Dangerous Liaisons, In the Line of Fire, Being John Malkovich and Burn After Reading. His Broadway directing credits include Arms and the Man in which he also performed and The Caretaker.

Presented by Rose Theatre Kingston and Mihara Donegan Productions Ltd.

Please note: This production contains strong language, drug and sex references.
