“A masterclass in grief . Straight from the minds of Jez Butterworth and Sam Mendes, this play brings draught, dry humour, and devastating loss right to the heart of the West End.” – Radio Times
“Jez Butterworth’s first play in seven years unfurls with the richness and depth of a well-crafted novel.” – Time Out
“A fine female cast powers this smart new play by Jez Butterworth about abuse, estrangement and mortality” – The Telegraph
“Sam Mendes’ beautifully paced production surfs time, place and mood and is gloriously acted.” – Financial Times
Following their multi-award-winning triumph The Ferryman, Jez Butterworth, writer of Jerusalem, resumes his partnership with Sam Mendes, director of The Lehman Trilogy, to bring you The Hills of California.
“Blackpool, 1976. The driest summer in 200 years. The beaches are packed. The hotels are heaving. In the sweltering backstreets, far from the choc ices and donkey rides, the Webb Sisters are returning to their mother’s run-down guest house, as she lies dying upstairs.
The Hills of California plays at Harold Pinter Theatre from 27 January 2024 for a strictly limited season.”
