Sherlock’s Andrew Scott Hope To ‘Dazzle’ You In New Play | Events

If you couldn’t get hold of a ticket to see Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch as Hamlet, there’s still time to catch his arch rival Moriarty – BAFTA-winning actor Andrew Scott – in his new play The Dazzle.


Set at the turn of the 20th Century, the play is about the gifted Collyer brothers, who were arguably one of the first cases of compulsive hoarding. When their bodies were found in 1947, they were buried underneath over 130 tons of junk and the operation by the emergency services to remove them was watched by over 2000 bystanders.


The play, currently enjoying its UK premiere, is written by TONY-award winning playwright Richard Greenberg, and stars Scott (fresh from his turn in Spectre) as Langley, an accomplished pianist, and The Last Kingdom‘s David Dawson as law specialist Homer. Joanna Vanderham (best known for BBC1’s The Paradise) plays Milly Ashmore, a Fifth Avenue heiress who becomes fascinated with Langley, much to the displeasure of Homer, who tries his utmost to get rid of her.


The Dazzle is presented by the Soho Theatre, at its new non-theatre pop-up space FOUND111. You can find FOUND111 at the former Central St Martin’s School Of Art building on London’s Charing Cross Road. Unfortunately, as there are 71 steps up to the building, the venue is inaccessible to wheelchair-users.


Phone the Soho Theatre box office on 020 7478 0100, or book online.
