The Finborough Theatre celebrates its 35th year with a Winter Season of vibrant new plays and unique rediscoveries including the first hit by Robert Bolt and a new play about life in North Korea by In-Sook Chappell.

The season opens with the first London production in over fifty years of Flowering Cherry by Robert Bolt (A Man for All Seasons, Doctor Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia) in its first London production since its premiere in 1957 which starred Sir Ralph Richardson, running 17 November – 20 December 2015. It plays alongside the first UK production in 25 years of the award-winning Off-Broadway musical 3 Guys Naked From The Waist Down, a 1980s comedy musical about 1980s musical comics, on Sunday and Monday evenings and Tuesday matinees from 22 November – 15 December 2015.

A new play about life in North Korea by award-winning playwright In-Sook Chappell, P'yongyang, receives its world premiere from 5 January – 30 January 2016, alongside the return by popular demand of Stony Broke in No Man’s Land, a world premiere written and directed by John Burrows, and performed by two original members of the Number 1 chart-topping group, The Flying Pickets, playing on Sunday and Monday evenings and Tuesday matinees from 10 – 26 January 2016.

The season comes to an end with the world premiere of Weald by award-winning new playwright Daniel Foxsmith, in association with the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, from 2 February – 27 February 2016.
