In a pub in South London ‘The Firm’ reunite for the first time in twelve years. Once they were a notorious criminal gang. Today, they’re older, wiser and wistful - their lives changed beyond recognition. But when an uninvited guest turns up to their reunion with an intriguing proposition and an explosive secret, they’re tempted to try their hands at one last job… Will they escape their pasts unscathed? Roy Williams’ gripping play is a tale of growing up, lifelong loyalties and how sometimes, it is possible to choose your own family. The Firm returns to Hampstead Downstairs following a sold-out run in 2017.


Multi-award winning playwright Roy Williams' other theatre credits include Sucker Punch (Royal Court), Sing Yer Heart Out For The Lads (National Theatre) and Soul (Hackney Empire/Royal Derngate).


Denis Lawson returns to direct his sell-out production of The Firm. Other directing credits include The Meeting (Hampstead Downstairs), Little Malcolm And His Struggle Against The Eunuchs starring Ewan McGregor (Hampstead Theatre/West End) and The Anniversary starring Sheila Hancock (West End). Ray Fearon (Fleabag and Silent Witness) stars as Gus.


He is joined by Makir Ahmed, George Eggay, Jay Simpson and Clarence Smith. The Firm has been kindly supported by the Godwin family.
