Please don’t be charmed, he’s not a lovable rogue…

Loosely based on Molière's tragicomedy ‘Don Juan’, this savagely funny and filthy modern update transports the action to contemporary London and follows the final adventures of its debauched protagonist – a cruel seducer who lives only for pleasure.

“Can make you almost vomit with laughter – and anxiety... Tennant is every bit as magnificent as he was as Hamlet... Prodigious.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Energetic... sparkles with comic brio... Radiates a dark wit... memorable lines... Tennant: magnetic... Scarborough: superb.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Fantastic, entertaining and unflagging... There is enormous pleasure to be had in the smallest details of Tennant’s performance.”

Kate Kellaway (Observer)

“Tennant invests a heartless libertine with a beguiling, fleet-footed charm... A disturbing ambivalence... Unnerving.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Brutal and ferociously funny... Both script and performance walk the tightrope of genuine comedy and near disgust with aplomb.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“The performance of the season from Tennant... callous and languid, fey, filthy and fascinating... Can’t take your eyes off him.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Has its ropey moments but then this is Soho we are talking about... Funny, acerbic, biting.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“Tennant... a charismatic blend of swagger and agility, exuding twinkly charm... Scarborough is a delight... Lacks bite.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Tennant is not quite feral enough... Scarborough on good form... Strikingly staged... Marber’s writing is full of verve.”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)

“A misogyny that slips down easy in a play that is in many ways light, frothy and defined by its charismatic lead... Watchable.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“A gruelling Moliere update that's as lacking in subtlety as it is over-produced.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Like a prolonged awkward fumble... Tennant emerges with his dignity intact... you’ve got to admire the cojones.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“A squirmfest of over-egged loucheness and ersatz depravity... Subtlety-free... A catastrophically ill-favoured production.”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)
