The Painkiller

Passed

This event has been and gone.

Two men. Two lonely hotel rooms. An adjoining door. One of them is a killer. One of them wants to die. What could possibly go wrong?

Sean Foley directs his darkly hilarious adaptation of Francis Veber's classic French farce as Kenneth Branagh and Rob Brydon reprise the roles they played to great acclaim at Belfast?s Lyric Theatre in this comic tour-de-force.

Featuring

Kenneth Branagh

Kenneth Branagh appearing at this event

One the giants of British theatre over the last few decades. As an actor, director and producer, he has played all of the great Shakespearian roles on the greatest stages in the country. He is also a star of many films, from his own 4-hour version of Hamlet, to his show-stealing comic turn as a celebrity-obsessed magician in Harry Potter.

Rob Brydon

Rob Brydon appearing at this event

This Swansea-born radio and TV presenter got his big break in 2001 with a series of short comedy monologues, 'Marion And Geoff', which were shown on BBC2. This was followed by further TV appearances as Keith Barret, presenter of a spoof chat show and, perhaps most notably, Bryn West in the sitcom 'Gavin & Stacey'. Rob's career began at Radio Wales at the age of 20 where he narrated many radio shows, adverts and animated films, as well as later appearing on television shows and films. His stand-up shows have been equally successful, with sold out shows around the UK. His film work includes The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Cinderella and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. In 2017 in London's West End he starred opposite Sir Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller. His other theatre credits include Future Conditional at The Old Vic and A Chorus of Disapproval at The Harold Pinter Theatre.
