DON JUAN IN SOHO: Meet The Cast Who Will Be Joining David Tennant On Stage This Spring
David Tennant returns to the West End stage this March as the lead in Don Juan In Soho at Wyndham’s theatre in London, directed by Patrick Marber.
The infamous, amoral hedonist in a society entranced by sensation. Moliere's farcical, tragic, anarchic Don Juan (1665) is the inspiration for Patrick Marber's play in which the action of the original is relocated to present day Soho, London. Whereas Moliere condemned his anti-hero to a literal Hell, Marber condemns him to a hell of his own making.
