The Entertainer
By John Osborne

Set against the backdrop of post-war Britain, John Osborne’s modern classic conjures the seedy glamour of the old music halls for an explosive examination of public masks and private torment.

Rob Ashford directs Kenneth Branagh as the unforgettable Archie Rice.

It's a peculiar play, but Branagh and the rest of the cast, put in good performances and I think got to the heart of the characters.

It was really dated and boring. Kenneth Branagh was great but he was in it so little compared to the rest of the cast who were average. We had really expensive seats at the front but left at half time.

Few can pull it off with such aplomb, singing, dancing, mimicking, stand-up comedy and acting from a versatile actor, Kenneth Branagh, with an enthusiastic supporting cast. The play draws on issues such as honour, duty and family cohesion without sentimentality or tears.

I was in the stalls near the front and I loved being so close to the actors! This play was amazing and Kenneth Branagh was fanastic playing the lead role as Archie. He really brought out the playfulness of the character as well as his faults.
