As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Tuesday 18 June 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock chairs an unmissable event at the West End premiere production of The Starry Messenger, starring Broadway legend Matthew Broderick and Elizabeth McGovern. Got any questions?

In the vastness of the universe, are we all just lonely souls under the same night sky?

Hollywood star and multiple Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Matthew Broderick makes his West End debut in The Starry Messenger by leading American dramatist Kenneth Lonergan, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Manchester By The Sea and Gangs of New York, whose other stage credits include This Is Our Youth and Lobby Hero.

Mark Williams is lost. An astronomer at New York City’s Planetarium, he feels a closer connection to the infinite, starry sky than to his job or even to his wife, Anne.  Mark doesn’t believe in fate or divine intervention, but the universe has other ideas.

After a chance meeting with Angela, a young single mother, Mark feels starry-eyed. But when a catastrophic event rips through their lives, Mark is forced to re-evaluate his life, his faith and his place in the universe itself.

Starring Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Mel Brooks’ The Producers) and Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey, The Handmaid’s Tale), this bittersweet, comic drama is an unblinking exploration of love, hope and understanding our place in the universe, by one of the most celebrated writers working today.

The production, directed by Sam Yates, also features Jim Norton, Rosalind Eleazar, Joplin Sibtain, Jenny Galloway, Sinead Matthews, Sid Sagar, Greg Baxter, Kerry Bennett, Helen Barford and Edward Wolstenholme.

After the 7.30pm performance on Tuesday 18 June 2019, I’ll be joined by Matthew Broderick, Elizabeth McGovern and other members of The Starry Messenger cast. Any questions? Join us!
