The Firm by Roy Williams (3 May-8 Jun)

In a pub in South London ‘The Firm’ reunite for the first time in twelve years. Once, they were a notorious criminal gang. Today, they’re older, wiser and wistful – their lives changed beyond recognition.

 

But when an uninvited guest turns up to their reunion with an intriguing proposition and an explosive secret, they’re tempted to try their hands at one last job… Will they escape their pasts unscathed?

 

Roy Williams’ gripping play is a tale of growing up, lifelong loyalties and how, sometimes, it is possible to choose your own family. The Firm returns to Hampstead Downstairs following a sold out run in 2017.

 

Roy Williams’ previous work at Hampstead Theatre includes The Firm (Downstairs); Wildefire and Local Boy (Main Stage). Other theatre work includes Soul: The Untold Story of Marvin Gaye (Royal and Derngate/Hackney Empire); Antigone (Pilot Theatre/UK tour); an adaptation of The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (Pilot Theatre/UK tour); Sucker Punch (Royal Court – nominated for Olivier Award for Best Play).
