JULIAN GLOVER in the West End with THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA

22 July 2019 Acting | Voice & Campaigns News Julian Glover

Charlie Gray

JULIAN GLOVER has opened in Tennessee Williams' THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA to glowing reviews.

In the strange limbo of 1940, on a dilapidated hotel verandah perched high in the rainforest above the west coast of Mexico, a group of lost souls collide - a defrocked priest turned tourist guide, the grieving widow who runs the hotel, a family of jubilant Nazis and an itinerant portrait artist with her 97 year old poet grandfather.  The result is an epic battle between the flesh and spirit, captivity and freedom, art and faith, heightened by a tropical rain-storm.

JULIAN plays the role of Nonno, an impoverished touring poet who, despite his failing health and memory, is trying to compose his final masterpiece.

"...brought to life by the fantastic Julian Glover..."   The Independent

"Julian Glover is spot-on as Miss Jelke's nonagenarian grandfather..."   The Times

"...lovely supporting performance from Julian Glover as the grandpa..."  Evening Standard

"...the excellent Julian Glover..."   Financial Times

 

THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA runs until 28th September 2019 at the NOEL COWARD THEATRE
