A Bush Theatre Production

The debut play from Olivier award-winning actor Rory Kinnear, directed by National Theatre Associate Director Howard Davies

It's Andy Griffith's 21st Birthday. Not that he's counting.

But his mother Carol is. Counting the minutes until he arrives, counting the unexpected guests, counting the times that this has happened before.

A witty and heartfelt look at family life when it doesn’t turn out quite the way you imagined.

British actor Rory Kinnear’s best-known credits include feature films Skyfall and Broken, and for stage Hamlet, The Revenger's Tragedy, The Man of Mode (National Theatre). He is currently playing Iago in the National Theatre’s production of Othello.
The Herd re-unites Rory with multi-award winning theatre director Howard Davies following The Last of the Haussmans and Burnt By The Sun (National Theatre).
