Cheap Sunny Afternoon tickets at the Harold Pinter Theatre
The Kinks are one of the greatest of all British rock groups, and now the story of their rise to fame comes to the stage, featuring the band's classic songs as written by head Kink Ray Davies, book by Joe Penhall, direction by Edward Hall and design by Miriam Buether.
Sunny Afternoon draws you into the whirlpool of the legendary North London quartet's famously volatile relationships and highly questionable career moves. Set against the backdrop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative fifties and riotous sixties, the show traces the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of the country's most iconic bands, and pulsates with the irresistible music that influenced a generation and still resonates today.
30 July, 1966. As Bobby Moore lifts the world-cup trophy, a hundred thousand fans in Wembley are singing Sunny Afternoon in unison; the Kinks' number one hit that rocked the nation that summer. How did that happen? And how did The Kinks end up not only invading America but also being banned from playing there at the height of their career?
These questions and many more are answered as the story of battling brothers Ray and Dave Davies, Pete Quaife and Mick Avory takes the stage in this acclaimed and exhilarating production.

Harold Pinter Theatre
The Harold Pinter Theatre is situated on Panton Street in the West End of London, close to Piccadilly Circus tube station. Built in 1881, this 796 seat venue was known as the Comedy Theatre until 2011. Its name change came about by way of tribute to the late great British playwright, many of whose works were staged here.
The first production at the Harold Pinter Theatre was The Mascotee, an Opera Comique, which opened on October 15 1881. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are Savages, Talking Heads, Six Degrees of Separation, The Caretaker and Little Malcolm and his Struggle Against the Eunuchs.
Today, the Harold Pinter Theatre enjoys consistent success and has established a solid reputation for its diverse repertoire, staging musical comedies, experimental theatre and classic revivals.
Like any long-serving institution it’s had its ups and downs but, in contrast to the massive upheavals experienced by many other West End theatres, the downs have been relatively few. Originally called the Comedy Theatre, it is one of the only remaining theatres in the West End whose interior is mostly unchanged, with only minor alterations carried out over the years. The original Orchestra Pit is still present in the theatre, though very rarely used.
While still trading under the Comedy name, the theatre was closed in 2011 in order to install a new grid and flying equipment. The theatre reopened after a one month closure as the Harold Pinter Theatre, in homage to the great modern playwright who had such a huge impact on British and world drama.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Harold Pinter Theatre make it a brilliant place to see musicals, plays and stand-up comedy. Recent successes include Ibsen’s Ghosts, The Old Masters, Sunset Boulevard, Birdsong, The Children’s Hour, Betrayal, Absent Friends, South Downs and The Browning Version and Spamalot.
Whatever you decide to see at the Harold Pinter Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
