Kenneth Branagh is practically taking over the Garrick Theatre for a whole year, with a series of five different plays.

The fifth offering is John Osborne's modern classic "The Entertainer".

Set against the backdrop of post-war Britain, the play explores the seedy glamour of the old music halls for an examination of public masks and private moments.
