Simon Russell Beale and John Simm are leading the cast in this new production of Harold Pinter's macabre tragicomedy.
Set in a sanatorium on Christmas Day, Hothouse sees staff subjecting inmates to a tirade of mindless cruelty.
Described as “funny, peculiar and frightening” by director Jamie Lloyd, the play is a political commentary on the perils of unchecked power.
Simon Russell Beale (Privates on Parade, National Theatre’s Timon of Athens and Collaborators) plays self-obsessed institution director Roote while John Simm (Elling, Sheffield Theatre's Hamlet and Betrayal) plays the ambitious Gibbs.
Hothouse follows the critically acclaimed, James McAvoy-starring Macbeth, in a thrilling season of work for Trafalgar Transformed.
Lloyd has directed numerous hit plays, including Donmar's Passion, Broadway's Cyrano de Bergerac, National Theatre's She Stoops to Conquer and Royal Court's The Pride.
