Ibsen’s Emperor and Galilean closes on Wednesday 10 August.

‘A brilliant rendition of Ibsen's play. Breathtakingly staged.’ Guardian

Andrew Scott and Ian McDiarmid lead a company of 50, charting the true odyssey of one man who could have changed everything forever. Epic staging, large-scale cast and a stunning production. Don’t miss your last chance to see this major play from one of the greatest playwrights of all time.

Raks's take on Emperor and Galilean

As you all know, I am a HUGE fan of this production - it is epic and outstanding. It is much better than Frankenstein - Benedict's performance as the Creature was mind-blowing, but Emperor and Galilean exercises your mind - key themes are friendship, integrity, faith, tyranny and ethics/morality. Andrew Scott puts his life and soul into the part of the Emperor Julian. For the first time in 20 years of London theatre going, I saw this play 3 times in a row last week and I am seeing it again 3 times in a row this week. I have fallen in love with the piece and taken it into my heart. Highly highly highly recommended.

I heard that BW was among a host of BBC Sherlock stars seeing Emperor and Galilean one particular evening. I like that they all go to see each other's performances. :-)

Today it was the turn of Jonny Lee Miller going to see Emperor and Galilean, and he was sat right behind me.
