The inaugural season of work for the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company promises a year of unmissable theatre culminating with John Osborneʼs 1957 modern classic The Entertainer, starring Kenneth Branagh himself as Archie Rice alongside Greta Scacchi.

The Entertainer is the story of Archie Rice, a struggling comedian and failing vaudeville performer in an age when the music hall tradition had all but disappeared. It paints a grim portrait of decay, using music hall as a metaphor to symbolise the decline of post-war Britain.

Driven by dreams of stardom and a desperation to equal his father Billy's success, Archie finds himself a man out of his time - an embittered and self-deluding has-been, headlining a tacky revue in a rundown seaside town. Family tensions reach boiling point as he shamelessly cheats on his wife and tricks his dying father into financing one last revue.

Throughout it all, Archie jigs and jabbers before his ever-diminishing audience, determined to do whatever it takes to keep the show going.
