WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Thrown together for one eventful night that pulses with conflicting passions and a surprising edge of humour, a group of tourists including Shannon, a disgraced priest (Clive Owen), and a troubled artist Hannah (Lia Williams) arrive at a remote coastal Mexican hotel run by the beautifully sensual Maxine (Anna Gunn). Tennessee Williams’s last great play THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA comes to the West End starring Clive Owen (Closer, Children of Men), Lia Williams (Kiri, Mary Stuart), Anna Gunn (Deadwood, Breaking Bad) and Julian Glover (Game of Thrones) directed by James Macdonald (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf). One night brings them together, and will leave them forever altered. What path will they choose?
