More about The Divine Mrs S

“Stop writing? This was your first play. Did Shakespeare let Titus Andronicus put him off? An experimental tragedy about a pie? You’ve just begun!”

Drury Lane, 1800. Mrs Sarah Siddons, universally acclaimed as the greatest actress of all time, holds complete sway over public and critics alike. But she is herself subject to direction from the men in her life - her bone-headed brother who runs the theatre and chooses her roles, and her faithless husband who signs her contracts and collects her fees. Siddons decides it’s time become the leading lady of her own life, harnessing her star power as the world’s first female celebrity and taking control of her own destiny – but she reckons without the absurdly comic plot-twists of a life on the stage…

April De Angelis’ hilarious backstage comedy recalls the origins of celebrity culture – before fame automatically granted wealth and power. Her other plays include Playhouse Creatures, My Brilliant Friend and Jumpy.

Anna Mackmin returns to Hampstead for the first time since directing Di and Viv and Rose, which transferred from Downstairs, to Main Stage and eventually the West End. Her other productions include Dancing at Lughnasa, The Real Thing and Hedda Gabler (all Old Vic).

The Divine Mrs S is a Hampstead Theatre/AKO Foundation Next Decade commission.

View Seating Plan
We have a modern auditorium which has been designed to be as flexible as possible in both staging and seating configurations.

The seating capacity can range up to 325, in a variety of formats. There are two main seating areas: Ground Floor (stalls) and Upstairs (circle). On the Ground Floor there is also a mezzanine level, the back row of which are stool seats: higher seats complete with footrests.

Movable seating blocks also allow for the auditorium to be changed from a more traditional end-on configuration with a raised stage, to thrust or traverse layouts where the audience is level with the performance area.

The forestage can be raised, or lowered to allow for an orchestra pit. The main section of stage can also be raised or lowered to change the relationship between performers and audience or to create a rake on stage, and contains removable sections for creating traps. The auditorium is fully air-conditioned.
