THE PERFORMANCE OF A DECADE BY JOHN MALKOVICH

Everything in Hollywood is for sale except the awards, which are for rent.
Bitter Wheat is a play about a depraved Hollywood mogul.
Our hero, Barney Fein, is a bloated monster – a studio head, who like his predecessor, the minotaur, devours the young he has lured into his cave.
Switch off your phone, take your seats and experience the latest masterpiece from award-winning playwright David Mamet. Don’t miss the legendary John Malkovich in his return to the West End after 33 year in this darkly satirical and provocative new drama.
Money, sex, power, you only need one of them to see Bitter Wheat – at the Garrick.
’Skin-crawlingly magnificent. I was absolutely riveted to my seat.
