The Unfriend tickets are on sale now for the show in London’s West End.

A new play from Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Sherlock), The Unfriend will begin performances at Wyndhams’ Theatre on 15 December 2023 with tickets on sale now here.

While on holiday Peter and Debbie befriend Elsa: a lusty, Trump-loving widow from Denver, USA. She’s less than woke but kind of wonderful. They agree to stay in touch – because no one ever really does, do they?

When Elsa invites herself to stay a few months later, they decide to look her up online. Too late, they learn the truth about Elsa Jean Krakowski. Deadly danger has just boarded a flight to London! What began as a casual holiday friendship is now a threat to the lives of their children.

Who’s on the cast?

Returning to the West End after a first run at the start of the year, The Unfriend will feature Lee Mack (Would I Lie To You, Not Going Out, Inside No. 9) as Peter, Sarah Alexander (Jonathan Creek, Green Wing, Smack The Pony and Coupling) as Peter’s wife Debbie and Nick Sampson (Witness for the Prosecution, Anthony and Cleopatra) as The Neighbour.

Frances Barber (Silk and Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool) returns to play the role of everyone’s favourite serial killer Elsa Jean Krakowski.

The Unfriend has a running time of 1 hour 55 minutes (including interval) and an age recommendation of 14+.

Lee Mack said: “I’m delighted to be joining The Unfriend with the brilliant Sarah Alexander and the wonderful Frances Barber, and of course all the other amazing cast. It’s such a fantastically written play by Steven Moffat that I might even go the whole hog and learn the words.”

The new play originally made its debut at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2022 before first transferring to the West End at the Criterion Theatre in 2023.

The Unfriend will play at London’s Wyndhams’ Theatre from 15 December 2023 currently booking through to 9 March 2024.
