RSC's Oppenheimer transfers to Vaudeville Theatre next month

Following the early closure of Di and Viv and Rose, it has been announced that the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Oppenheimer will transfer to the Vaudeville Theatre for a limited run.

Starring John Heffernan, the production will run between 27th March and 23rd May 2015. Tom Morton-Smith's new play comes to the West End following its run in Stratford-upon-Avon which concludes on 7th March 2015. Angus Jackson directs.

Gregory Doran (Artistic Director of the RSC) said: "I am so pleased that Tom's wonderful play can be seen by London audiences. The epic nature of the subject and the broad sweep of the narrative is something we have always encouraged in our commissioned new work. This is a direct legacy of Shakespeare, who, of course, was once a ‘new writer' himself."
