Both Damian and Helen attended a star-studded night at The Hunt playing at the Almeida Theatre in London on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. The play is described as:

“We are a small community. The happiness of our children is everything. Our hopes and dreams rest in these tiny souls. In a small town in northern Denmark, the children celebrate Harvest Festival. In the forest by the water the men of the lodge stand naked in the cold. This is their country. This is their song. In the shadows a lonely child gives a strange man her heart. The hunt begins.”

The play runs until August 3, 2019. For ticket information, click here.

Damian and Helen Enjoy An Evening at the Theatre – May 22, 2019

The Lehman Trilogy

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | May 22, 2019

Thespians Damian and Helen, pictured with Ben Power here, attended opening night of award-winning The Lehman Trilogy play at London’s Piccadilly Theatre on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.

They joined Press Night for a VIP preview of the new production. Others in attendance were Adrian Lester, Stephen Mangan, Helen George, Natalie Dormer, Iain Glen and Ben Power.

The Lehman Brothers have opened their doors in the West End for a limited, 16-week run. It is story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.

On a cold September morning in 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. Dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins.

163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.

Bobby Axelrod knows a thing or two about Wallstreet and the financial crisis!

The play was adapted by Ben Power, with Sam Mendes directing Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons.

Damian Scheduled to Appear in Murder Mystery Play – April 2, 2019

Whodunnit: A Theatrical Murder Mystery

by Press Association | Ludlow Advertiser | April 2, 2019

Gillian Anderson, Jim Broadbent and Damian Lewis appear in Park Theatre’s Whodunnit Unrehearsed. They are among the stars appearing in a new play – without having rehearsed or seen a script – at London’s Park Theatre this summer.

Whodunnit (Unrehearsed) will see a different guest performer step onstage each night with a rehearsed ensemble cast of a scripted murder mystery play, despite not having had any direction prior to their appearance. The only direction will come via a hidden earpiece to receive instructions as they attempt to solve the crime in real time. The mystery is not so much who the murderer is, but who the inspector will be. The audiences won’t know which celebrity is appearing each night until the start.

The Evening Standard corroborates stating,

“The actors all appear as the inspector in Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] and will be sent on stage without a script to join the rest of the cast and identify the killer.”

Described as a “murder mystery spoof” with “one hell of a twist”, the play is set in an isolated manor against the backdrop of a brewing storm. The setting is a classic 1950s murder mystery, an isolated manor, a body and a cast of characters that includes the Lord of the Manor, his wayward daughter, the housekeeper, and her son who is in love with the daughter. Then a mysterious stranger arrives.

Whodunnit (Unrehearsed) will be narrated by Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Judi Dench as a different celebrity appears each night.

Others confirmed to be taking part include Gyles Brandreth, Catherine Tate, Jim Broadbent, Simon Callow, Ronan Keating, Maureen Lipman, Juliet Stevenson, Tim Vine, Bradley Walsh, Adrian Dunbar, Matthew Broderick, and Meera Syal.

The stars are donating their time to support a fundraising effort, with money raised going towards the cost of keeping the Park Theatre – a registered charity – open to the public.
