About The Night of the Iguana

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?

More information about The Night of the Iguana

Set in 1940s Mexico, “The Night of the Iguana” centers on a reverend who has been expelled from his church in the United States, after criticising the image of God. He then becomes a tour guide for a nearby travel agency, and he and his tour group arrive at a hotel for the evening and meet the curious figures of Hannah and her sick grandfather while a storm rages outside. Tensions rise as the big personalities gradually get to know one another throughout the night. “The Night of the Iguana” shows that beauty can be found in some of the most unlikely of places.

Tennessee Williams originally wrote the play as a one-act, but he returned to the piece in 1959 to extend the play into three acts. It debuted on Broadway in 1961, when it was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play. “The Night of the Iguana” is full of complicated characters and powerful writing allowing for notable performances in the central roles. Described by The Telegraph as a powerful look at “human desperation and the unbearable ache of loneliness,” Williams’s lesser-performed work returns to the London stage this summer.

What to watch for

Hannah is considered one of Tennessee William’s greatest heroines, along with Blanche from “A Streetcar Named Desire” and Alma from “Summer and Smoke.”

Clive Owen returns to the West End for the first time in 18 years. He last appeared in “A Day in the Death of Joe Egg” in 2001.

“The Night of the Iguana” was previously staged at the in 1992 at the National Theatre and in 2005 starring Woody Harrelson.

The play was adapted into a film in 1964 starring Richard Burton and Deborah Kerr. The movie drew a lot media attention while filming when Burton brought his partner Elizabeth Taylor to the set.
