David Young – The Night of the Iguana

David will be appearing as an understudy in Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana running at the Noel Coward Theatre from the 6th of July until the 28th of September.

Starring Clive Owen, Anna Gunn (aka Skyler from Breaking Bad), Lia Williams and Julian Glover, this adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ last great play is being directed by the acclaimed theatre and film director James Macdonald.

Written in 1940 and adapted into a 1964 Oscar-nominated film starring Richard Burton and Ava Gardner, it focuses primarily on the story of Lawrence Shannon, a disgraced ex-minister who has been forced to work as a tour guide for a two-bit travel agency in Mexico, and Hannah Jelkes, a spinster who is a member of Lawrence’s tour group travelling with her ailing grandfather.

Throw in the grieving widow who runs the hotel & a family of jubilant Nazis and the result is an epic battle between flesh and spirit, captivity and freedom, art and faith; all set in the Mexican rainforest in the midst of a torrential downpour.
