Seven-time BAFTA winner Steve Coogan will lead a stage adaption of Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove in the West End in 2024.
The world premiere will play the Noël Coward Theatre beginning October 8, 2024, for a limited run through December 21. The production will see Coogan playing multiple roles throughout the nuclear crisis comedy. Directed by Sean Foley and co-adapted by Foley and Armando Iannucci, the satire is one of Kubrick's most beloved films.
Said Coogan, “The idea of putting Dr Strangelove on stage is daunting. A huge responsibility. It’s also an exciting challenge, an opportunity to bring this timeless classic to a new audience. Knowing that I will be part of a creative team led by Sean Foley and Armando Iannucci means I will be working with the best people. Sean is a master of stage comedy and Armando and I started working with each other over 30 years ago. We made some memorable comedy together so it’s great to be collaborating with him once again.”
Information on additional cast and creative team members will be announced at a later date.
