The former Doctor Who star is set to appear in Patrick Marber’s play, running at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 17th March until the 10th June 2017.
Written and directed by Patrick Marber, the play is a new adaptation of Moliere’s farcical, tragic and anarchic original 1665 play that re-examines the character Don Juan.
It will be a busy time for Patrick Marber for the next few months as he will also be directing the West End transfer of Travesties.
He wrote Don Juan in Soho in 2006 for a production at the Donmar Warehouse starring Rhys Ifans. It received strong reviews from critics when it originally opened.
Loosely based on the classic Molière comedy, Marber’s play has been described as a contemporary take on Molière’s original play. This modern take sets the action in Soho amid swanky hotels and old clip joints. Among the whores, the broken and the brazen the notorious Don Juan and follows his final adventures as a cruel seducer who only lives for pleasure.
This new production will feature set and costume design by Anne Fleischle and sound and music by Adam Cork.
David Tennant was last seen at the Wyndham’s theatre in 2011, starring in alongside Catherine Tate’s Beatrice in Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. His most recent West End stage role was in the RSC’s production of Richard II which ran at the Barbican Theatre and later transferred to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City.
