'Absolute Hell' at the National Theatre

Up to 49 percent off tickets to the revival of this bold, ambitious play

WHAT IS IT? Exclusively priced tickets to this 'tenderly atmospheric' revival at the National Theatre we awarded four stars. WHY BUY? Rodney Ackland’s extraordinarily provocative play was condemned as ‘a libel on the British people’ when first performed in 1952. What was then a state-of-the-nation piece is now a backward glance into a shattered country. Now, our Theatre editor has referred to its revival as a 'vital historical document of a swirling nocturnal London'. In a Soho den reeling in the aftermath of the Second World War, members drinks themselves into oblivion, night after night. 'Absolute Hell', starring Kate Fleetwood (‘Medea’) and Prasanna Puwanarajah (‘Doctor Foster’), traces the lives of these wandering souls as they navigate their way through post-war London and try to move towards an uncertain future. Don’t miss this classic, evocative revival; 'the grandest and most moving work of Hill-Gibbins’s career'. Our tickets will save you up to 49 percent – now just £29.50.
