Cast Announcement for Mood Music


We are thrilled to announce that Rhys Ifans will be returning to The Old Vic in 2018 to perform in our bicentenary production of Mood Music.

First at The Old Vic in 2016 in King Lear with Glenda Jackson, and currently starring in our critically-acclaimed production of A Christmas Carol, Rhys’ performance has been hailed as ‘remarkably powerful’ by The Independent. We are delighted that he will return to us for a third time in Matthew Warchus’ tenure in this brand new show by Joe Penhall (Blue/Orange, Sunny Afternoon) and directed by Roger Michell (MaryaBlue/OrangeConsent). 

Rhys will play the producer Bernard in this play about the drama and the psychodrama of making music.

Mood Music plays over The Old Vic’s 200th birthday on 11 May 2018 and is the fourth production in The Old Vic’s
bicentenary season.
