Win one of five pairs of tickets to see Dominic West in Butley
Friday 06 May 2011
Dominic West, star of hit US drama The Wire, takes on the iconic title role of the rapier-tongued lecturer in a major revival of Simon Gray’s play Butley, from 1 June to 27 August.
Ben Butley is having a monumentally bad day. So bad, he’s making sure everyone else has a worse one. His estranged wife has taken up with the most boring man in London. His beloved protégé has found a new benefactor. And in an unprecedented act of betrayal even the English department’s resident failure has a book deal.
Once a charismatic tutor and an authority on T.S. Eliot, he now sharpens his mind on his unfortunate colleagues while trying to evade his more persistent students. Mischievous irony and gleeful trouble-making all feature in his arsenal; inevitably they prove to be the weapons of his own self-destruction.
