In September, Anthony Page will direct Noel Coward’s provocative and unconventional romantic comedy, Design For Living, for the first time on the London stage in over 15 years.
Coward focuses on three egotistical, beguiling and self-absorbed characters – Gilda, Otto, and Leo – who challenge the moral boundaries of relationships. Anthony Page’s production for The Old Vic will star Lisa Dillon and Tom Burke. Design For Living is a co-production with Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer.

Anna Mackmin returns to The Old Vic to direct Toby Stephens in Tom Stoppard’s multi-award-winning modern classic. Deeply moving and startlingly funny, this razor sharp drama brilliantly examines the complex nature of love, art and reality.
HENRY, the hero of Tom Stoppard’s ”Real Thing,” is an English playwright of unbeatable intellectual prowess. He knows how to make words ”go on replicating themselves like a spiral of DNA” and how to ad lib a brilliant rejoinder to any question. Both in life and in the theater, he can always get the last word and the smartest laugh. But there’s one question Henry can’t so easily answer or write about or joke away: What is this thing called love?
Director: Anna Mackmin
Designer: Lez Brotherston
