★★★★ ‘Terry Johnson’s meticulous production’ Sunday Express

Two men meet on a subway platform; the chance encounter instantly changing the trajectory of both their lives. 

Thrown together, their conversation quickly turns to the most essential and existential questions facing humanity. While their beliefs seem irreconcilable, the answers they seek could mean the difference between life and death.

Multi award-winning writer Cormac McCarthy‘s gripping play explores redemption, faith and free will – can you be your brother’s keeper if he doesn’t want to be kept? His celebrated other works include The Road, All the Pretty Horses and No Country for Old Men. 

The London premiere of The Sunset Limited will be directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Terry Johnson, whose credits include West End hits Mrs Henderson Presents, La Cage aux Folles and The Graduate. 

Please note this production contains themes around suicide and mental health. If you would like further information on the show’s content, please email
