The 50th-anniversary production of Arthur Miller’s drama The Price will transfer to the West End in February 2019 following a critical and publicly acclaimed reception at the Theatre Royal Bath earlier this summer. David Suchet and Brendan Coyle will both reprise their roles in Jonathan Church’s revival with Adrian Lukis and Sara Stewart. The Price will run at Wyndham’s Theatre from 5 February to 27 April 2019 with opening night on 11 February.
