News: Ralph Fiennes’s Four Quartets receives West End transfer

A West End transfer has been announced for Ralph Fiennes’s world premiere stage adaptation of Four Quartets.

Set to arrive at the Harold Pinter Theatre, following a UK tour, the production will run at the London venue from 18 November to 18 December.

Four Quartets is by T.S. Eliot, with creative team for this production including director Ralph Fiennes, who also stars in the show, designer Hildegard Bechtler, lighting designer Tim Lutkin, sound designer Christopher Shutt and creative producer James Dacre.

Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Royal & Derngate, Northampton present this critically-acclaimed production, which tours across the UK this summer.

Compelling, moving and symphonic, Four Quartets was the culminating achievement of T.S. Eliot’s career as a poet, offering four interwoven meditations on the nature of time, faith, and the quest for spiritual enlightenment

Mostly written during WWII when the closure of playhouses during the Blitz interrupted Eliot’s work in theatre, the Four Quartets (Burnt Norton, East Coker, The Dry Salvages and Little Gidding), contain some of the most exquisite and unforgettable reflections upon surviving periods of national crisis.

Ralph Fiennes stars in the show, with credits including a Tony Award-winning stint as Hamlet, Antony and CleopatraRichard III and The Master Builder. His numerous film roles include a BAFTA-winning performance in Schindler’s List, The English Patient, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Constant Gardner, Skyfall, In Bruges, The Dig and the Harry Potter series.
