About Upstart Crow

David Mitchell makes his West End debut in Ben Elton's stage adaptation of the critically acclaimed BBC TV sitcom, Upstart Crow. This all-new comedy - written especially for the stage - will see Mitchell once more don the bald wig and bardish coddling pouch in his iconic characterisation of Will Shakespeare.

Opening at the Gielgud Theatre on 7 February. Gemma Whelan ('Game of Thrones' and 'Gentleman Jack') will co-star as the sweet and fragrant Kate. They will be joined on stage by a troupe of players for this 11-week season, directed by Sean Foley.

David Mitchell says: "I’m delighted to have the opportunity to bring history’s most famous balding dramatist to the West End via the amazing comic imagination of Ben Elton. Theatre goers can look forward to a comedy steeped in authentic Shakespearean ambience in every way apart from the smell."

Running Time 100 minutes plus one interval.
