In the strange limbo of 1940, on a dilapidated hotel verandah perched high in a rainforest above the west coast of Mexico, a group of lost souls collide – a defrocked priest turned tourist guide, the grieving widow who runs the hotel, a family of jubilant Nazis… and an itinerant portrait artist with her 97-year-old poet grandfather. The result is an epic battle between flesh and spirit, captivity and freedom, art and faith – heightened by the arrival of a tropical rain-storm.
As well as being directed by James MacDonald (Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf, The Father and The Changing Room), the production is set to include designs by Rae Smith, lighting design by Neil Austin and sound design by Max Pappenheim.
The Night of the Iguana will play at the Noel Coward Theatre from the 6th July until the 28th September. To book tickets click here or visit: Love Theatre.com, Encore Tickets, Last Minute.com, From the Box Office, See Tickets or Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk.
