Three theatrical giants come together in this fresh new dramatic tour de force, The Holy Terror

Simon Callow, one of the UK’s best loved and finest actors (Mystery of Charles Dickens, Four Weddings and a Funeral), is directed by award-winning director Laurence Boswell (A Day in the Death of Joe Egg) in one of the UK’s greatest playwrights Simon Gray’s (Quartermaine’s Terms, Butley & A Common Pursuit) funny and moving portraits of a flawed genius.

Arrogant, manipulative and cunning, Mark (Simon Callow) reigns supreme as king of the publishing jungle, where nothing stops a good story and ever more profitable book rights. But it’s tough at the top, and when inner demons get hold, his fall from grace is of majestic proportions.

Simon Callow leads an impressive cast in this master class of psychological battles. A passionate and absorbing journey, this modern morality play shines with intelligent humour and heartrending poignancy – a landmark in British theatre.
