Rowan Atkinson returns to the West End

Date Posted: 11/06/2012

Rowan Atkinson will return to the West End stage next year, starring in Simon Gray’s play Quartermaine’s Terms at Wyndham’s Theatre.

Playing the well-meaning but hopeless teacher St John Quartermaine in this West End revival, Quartermaine’s Terms will preview in London on 23rd January, booking until 13th April.

Set in the 1960s in an English language school for foreigners, this tragicomic play is billed as a humorous but ultimately moving account of several years in the lives of seven teachers.

At the heart of the group is St John Quartermaine - kind, pleasant and agreeable, but utterly hopeless as a teacher. An almost permanent feature in the staff room, he's always available to listen to the problems of his self-obsessed colleagues. But when a new principal is appointed, Quartermaine’s future looks precarious.

Quartermaine’s Terms will play the Theatre Royal Brighton (8th to 12th January) and Theatre Royal Bath (14th to 19th January) prior to its West End opening.

Group travel organisers can book tickets now.
