The Painkiller

by FRANCIS VEBER in an adaptation by SEAN FOLEY
Cast includes CLAUDIE BLAKLEY, KENNETH BRANAGH, ROB BRYDON, MARCUS FRASER, MARK HADFIELD AND ALEX MACQUEEN

Two men. Two lonely hotel rooms. An adjoining door...

One of them is a killer… one of them wants to die… What could possibly go wrong?


Sean Foley directs his darkly hilarious adaptation of Francis Veberʼs classic French farce. The Painkiller will be the fourth production in the Plays at the Garrick season and will unite Kenneth Branagh and Rob Brydon, who will star in this comic tour-de-force alongside Claudie Blakley, Marcus Fraser, Mark Hadfield and Alex Macqueen.
