Mad House tickets

A darkly funny family drama

Stranger Things star David Harbour makes a blinding West End debut in dark and funny new play Mad House at the Ambassadors Theatre.

Michael has returned to his childhood home in rural Pennsylvania to look after his dying father. His siblings Ned and Pam soon turn up, with one thing on their minds: how big is the inheritance and when are they getting their hands on it?

Harbour, best known for his role as Jim Hopper in Netflix hit Stranger Things, stars as Michael opposite acclaimed stage and screen actor Bill Pullman, in this provocative portrait of a family's final reunion.

Mad House is the latest play from Theresa Rebeck (Smash, Bernhardt/Hamlet), directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Hand to God, Present Laughter).

Really enjoyed this play which is beautifully acted. I know it’s a dark comedy but some of the most poignant parts of the story were, I felt, inappropriately laughed through by some of the audience. There were really funny parts and it also made me cry. I did find the end a bit anti climactic/ unsatisfying as you feel worried about what will happen to The main character. Stunning performances from Harbour, Pullman and Henry who plays Lillian the nurse. It never feels acted just like watching normal people.

A really strong performance from both Bill Pullman and David Harbour. Good solid writing in a dark comedy that deals with hard topics such as mental health and death. You really felt like you were a fly on the wall watching as the family unravel in front of your eyes. Highly recommend.

Wickedly funny and deeply touching. Bill Pullman and Akiya Henry find emotion in every scene, and David Harbour is larger than life. Bill Pullman's Trump-like comic moments are utterly hilarious too! Great writing, though the pace is a little skewed in the second half, excellent attention to detail in the set design and subtle, atmospheric lighting. I'm sure a lot of people are only seeing this because of David Harbour, but it is a fantastic play in its own right.

Really enjoyed this play. It was thought provoking Whittier at times and very well done. Fantastic cast, and nice to be in a intimate theatre and feel fully immersed in the show due to the intimate feel of the place.

Funny and incisive script providing a glimpse into a toxic family dynamic. Excellent performances, especially from the two leads. Akiya Henry's voice needed a little more projection at times and her Caribbean accent occasionally drifted into Welsh which was a bit distracting. An excellent show.
