2 - 19 Nov


Our co-production with Bristol Old Vic and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse promises to be full of big wigs, big frocks, cheeky humour and a healthy dose of scandal and wit.

Julie Legrand makes her long-awaited return to the Citz having performed in the 1980s alongside Rupert Everett, Gary Oldman, Roberta Taylor and Giles Havergal as "pineapple of politeness" Mrs Malaprop. Olivier Award-winner Desmond Barrit plays opposite her as Sir Anthony Absolute, having previously appeared with Julie in Wicked in London's West End. 

We're thrilled to welcome back former Citizens Theatre Actor Intern Jessica Hardwick as Julia. Since her debut as Sonya in Crime and Punishment, Jessica has since appeared in lead roles at the Citz in Lanark: A Life In Three Acts, Slope and Rapunzel and in Miss Julie. The cast also includes Nicholas Bishop (Faulkland), Lucy Briggs-Owen (Lydia Languish), Lily DonovanKeith Dunphy (Sir Lucius O’Trigger), Lee Mengo who appeared in 2014's The Libertine (Bob Acres), Shaun Miller and Rhys Rusbatch (Captain Jack Absolute).
