Butley CLOSED on the 27 August 2011
Dominic West, star of hit US drama The Wire, has been playing rapier-tongued lecturer Ben Butley in a major new revival of Simon Gray’s award-winning comedy, Butley and there are only 2 more days left as it closes on 27 August.
Ben Butley is having a monumentally bad start to the term. So bad, he’s making sure everyone else has a worse one. Over the course of a day he discovers that his estranged wife is divorcing him for the most boring man in London and, even worse, that his beloved protégé and best friend is leaving him too. Once a brilliant and charismatic professor, Butley suddenly finds his life and relationships self-combusting in a matter of hours.
Butley might be going down, but he sure as hell is going down fighting. Employing his trusty arsenal of mischievous irony and gleeful wit, Butley diverts attention from his unravelling life by entangling his students and colleagues in his own dangerous blend of trouble and fun.
If any one wants to come to London for a theatre break make sure you come before 27 August and make sure you make it a Butley Theatre Break

A really good night out. Went with friends - we go each fortnight - and we all really enjoyed it.
