Branagh Theatre Live: The Entertainer

About this Film

Branagh Theatre Live: The Entertainer

ODEON says...
John Osborne’s modern classic ‘The Entertainer’ is revived at the Garrick Theatre, starring Kenneth Branagh as the unforgettable Archie Rice, a racist, sexist music hall performer whose career is failing.

Set against the backdrop of Britain after the Second World War, director Rob Ashford summons up the grimy glamour of old vaudeville for this explosive exploration of the difference between who we are on stage and who we are in private.

Branagh takes up the role first made famous by the legendary Laurence Olivier, bringing ‘The Entertainer’ back onto the stage and screen.
