Save £10 on tickets to see Dominic West in Butley
Friday 03 June 2011
Dominic West, star of hit US drama The Wire, will take on the iconic title role of the rapier-tongued lecturer in a major new revival of Simon Gray’s Butley.
Rapier-tongued lecturer 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 (one he is actually sleeping with, to boot). 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 tragic self-destruction.
