SWEET CHARITY

BOOK BY NEIL SIMON MUSIC BY CY COLEMAN LYRICS BY DOROTHY FIELDS
BASED ON AN ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY BY FEDERICO FELLINI, TULLIO PINELLI, ENNIO PLAIANO

"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, multiple guest actors will play the role of Daddy Brubeck including Shaq Taylor, Adrian Lester, Le Gateau Chocolat, Beverley Knight and Clive Rowe.

Shaq Taylor will play the role from 6-13 April, Adrian Lester will play the role from 15-27 April to include press night, Le Gateau Chocolat will play the role during the week beginning 29 April, Beverley Knight will play the role during the week beginning 6 May and Clive Rowe during the week beginning 13 May. Further casting will be announced soon.
