It has just been revealed that Doctor Who guest stars Adrian Scarborough & Gawn Grainger will join ex-time lord David Tennant in the new production of Don Juan in Soho.

Some may recognise Adrian Scarborough from his 2012 appearance as Kahler-Jex in the eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) episode, ‘A Town Called Mercy’. While Gawn Grainger appeared as George Stephenson alongside Colin Baker, Anthony Ainley and Kate O’Mara in the 1985 2-parter, ‘The Mark of the Rani’

Both actors are well-established stars of TV, film and theatre. Scarborough has appeared in comedies such as Gavin and Stacy, Miranda and Father Brown as well as appearing in the hugely successfully film ‘The Kings Speech’. He is also no stranger to the theatre appearing in twenty productions for the Royal National Theatre.

Glasgow-born Gwan Grainger is a stage and screen actor, and husband of actress Zoë Wanamaker (Casandra, Doctor Who). He made his stage debut  in 1950 as the Boy King in King’s Rhapsody going on to appear in numerous plays for the National Theatre and the Donmar Warehouse. More recently he was on stage in The Entertainer for the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company at the Garrick Theatre. His career features TV shows such as ‘Eastenders’, ‘Darling Buds of May’ and ‘Midsomer Murders’.

David Tennant plays DJ in this new production of Don Juan in Soho. It is written and directed by Patrick Marber and is loosely based on Molière’s tragicomedy ‘Don Juan’. This modern update transports the action to contemporary London and follows the final adventures of its debauched protagonist – a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure. The play is also described as savagely funny and filthy.

Don Juan in Soho runs for a strictly limited 11 week season from March 17th to June 10th 2017  at the Wyndham’s Theatre. Tickets are available.
