David Tennant stars in the West End premiere of DON JUAN IN SOHO, the 'savagely funny and disgracefully sexy' (The Telegraph) play written and directed by Patrick Marber.
Loosely based on Molière's tragicomedy 'Don Juan', this modern update transports the action to contemporary London and follows the final adventures of its debauched protagonist - a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure.
Marking ten years since its acclaimed run at the Donmar Warehouse, David Tennant leads an electrifying cast, including Adrian Scarborough and Gawn Grainger, at Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited season.
