The Show
????? - 'A brilliant new play ' - Financial Times????? - 'A magnificent tour de force' - Broadway World????? - 'Funny, witty and utterly compelling' - WhatsOnStage ???? - 'A love letter to theatre' - Evening Standard__Sam Mendes__ directs __Johnny Flynn__ as Richard Burton, __Mark Gatiss__ as John Gielgud and __Tuppence Middleton__ as Elizabeth Taylor, in this fierce and funny new play by __Jack Thorne__, offering a glimpse into the politics of a rehearsal room and the relationship between art and celebrity.

__1964:__ Richard Burton, newly married to Elizabeth Taylor, is to play the title role in an experimental new Broadway production of Hamlet under John Gielgud's exacting direction.

But as rehearsals progress, two ages of theatre collide and the collaboration between actor and director soon threatens to unravel.

The hugely celebrated production of *The Motive and the Cue* is now playing in the West End for 15 weeks only, following a sold-out run at the National Theatre.
