Dead Ringer

When the Prime Minister drops dead from an apparent heart attack on the eve of a general election, two cabinet members who fear they need his charisma to get re-elected hire an out of work actor to replace the deceased. This ‘dead ringer’ is just supposed to fill in until after the election is won, but he starts to enjoy his new role a little too much...

The play was first presented in London by Bill Kenwright together with the author Charles Ross in 1983 at the Duke of York’s Theatre, where it had a most successful run and 
great reviews.

A Streetcar Named Desire 

'I have always depended on the kindness of strangers'

Fading southern belle Blanche DuBois is adrift in the modern world. When she arrives to stay with her sister Stella in a crowded, boisterous corner of New Orleans, her delusions of grandeur bring her into conflict with Stella's crude, brutish husband Stanley Kowalski. Eventually their violent collision course causes Blanche's fragile sense of identity to crumble, threatening to destroy her sanity and her one chance of happiness.
