David Tennant, who is set to play the title role in Patrick Marber’s Don Juan in Soho, will be joined by Adrian Scarborough as Stan and Gawn Grainger as Louis. 

“Please don’t be charmed, he’s not a lovable rogue...”  Loosely based on Molière’s tragicomedy 'Don Juan', this savagely funny and filthy 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.

The production will preview at Wyndham’s Theatre from 17 March 2017, with press night on 28 March. Don Juan In Soho will complete its strictly limited eleven week run on 10 June.

Direction is by Patrick Marber with set and costume designs by Anna Fleischle, lighting by Mark Henderson and sound and music by Adam Cork. Final casting will be announced at a later date.

Adrian Scarborough (Stan) was last on stage as The Fool in Sam Mendes’ production of King Lear at the National Theatre, where his many credits also include After the Dance, The Habit Of Art, Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead, and The Wind In The Willows. His film credits include On Chesil Beach, Les Misérables, The King's Speech, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Notes On A Scandal, and The History Boys, and his television credits include two series of Blunt Talk opposite Patrick Stewart.

Gawn Grainger (Louis) was most recently on stage in The Entertainer for the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company at the Garrick Theatre.  His other theatre credits include The Cherry Orchard at the Young Vic, Macbeth at Shakespeare’s Globe and The Recruiting Officer at the Donmar Warehouse as well as Onassis, Absolutely Perhaps and The Crucible all in the West End. His film credits include Blood Royal, Christmas Carol and The Little Drummer Girl, and on television, Labyrinth, The Nativity, Big Deal, and Foyle’s War.

David Tennant (Don Juan) has worked extensively in theatre, television and film winning numerous awards for his work including the Critics' Circle Award for Best Shakespearean Performance and the National Television Award for Outstanding Drama Performance, while Patrick Marber’s plays include Dealer’s Choice, After Miss Julie, Closer, Howard Katz, Three Days In The Country and The Red Lion.
