"The minute you walked in the joint, I could see you were a man of distinction, a real Big Spender..."

New York, 1967. Charity Hope Valentine is a dance hall hostess who "runs her heart like a hotel - you've got men checking in and out all the time." At the raw end of a long line of users and losers, she meets Oscar, a mild-mannered tax accountant, and Charity Hope Valentine once again puts her faith into love.

Josie Rourke returns to the work of Cy Coleman, who wrote the music for City of Angels, with the Broadway classic Sweet Charity. With choreography from the world-renowned Wayne McGregor, Rourke reunites with Anne-Marie Duff as Charity, and Arthur Darvill makes his Donmar debut as Oscar, for her farewell production as Donmar Artistic Director.

During Sweet Charity, Daddy Brubeck will be played by multiple guest actors. For this weeks performances, on Monday. Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, the role of Daddy Brubeck will be played by Shaq Taylor. For performances on Thursday and Friday, Beverley Knight will play the role of Daddy Brubeck.
