After 33 years, John Malkovich returns to the West End stage to star in David Mamet's new play.
Hollywood tycoon and predator, Barney Fein, is accused of sexual misconduct. Award-winning American playwright, David Mamet writes and directs this new play about abuses of power in male-dominated Hollywood. John Malkovich stars in the title role as Barney Fein.
And then he's written Bitter Wheat, which is not really a play at all but an unfocused and tawdry howl of anger which unforgivably wastes the talents of its greatest asset, its leading man John Malkovich.
David Mamet’s new play is billed as a dark farce and an attempt to examine the #MeToo movement from an unfamiliar angle. But instead of prompting nuanced discussion, it has the rancid smell of clickbait.
