Book The Hothouse Tickets at the Trafalgar Studios, London

Starring Simon Russell Beale and John Simm

About The Hothouse

Simon Russell Beale and John Simm star in Harold Pinter’s macabre tragicomedy, The Hothouse at the Trafalgar Studios, in this new production directed by Jamie Lloyd (Donmar’s Passion, Broadway’s Cyrano de Bergerac, National Theatre's She Stoops to Conquer, Royal Court’s The Pride). 

The Hothouse follows the critically acclaimed and sold out Macbeth (starring James McAvoy) in a thrilling season of work for Trafalgar Transformed. 

The Hothouse is set on Christmas Day in a nameless state-run mental institution where the inmates are subjected to a tirade of mindless cruelty. A maniacal and self-obsessed leader breeds a contagion of hierarchical savagery amongst his staff, who thrive on a noxious diet of delusion and deceit. Under a veil of devilish wit and subversive humour, Pinter’s biting political commentary on the perils of unchecked power is as vital and pertinent today as when it was written in the 50s.

★★★★ 'Richly pleasurable an boundlessly funny' The Guardian

★★★★ 'An outrageously funny production' What's on Stage

★★★★ 'An outstanding cast do the piece proud'  The Telegraph

★★★★ ‘Merciless, very funny revival’ The Independent

★★★★ 'A berserk, full-throttle revival' Time Out.

The Hothouse cast also includes John Heffernan (Lush), Harry Melling (Lamb), Clive Rowe (Tubb), Christopher Timothy (Lobb) and Indira Varma (Miss Cutts).
