Key facts

Playwright: Patrick Barlow


They said it was unachievable! They said it couldn’t be done!

But now the team behind the Olivier and Tony award-winning comedy The 39 Steps are BACK with a sensational, awe-inspiring and unforgettable staging of General Lew Wallace’s timeless classic Ben Hur.

The greatest book ever penned is brought to the stage by a towering team of just four actors, turning the Tricycle stage into one of the most authentic versions of ancient Rome ever seen.

Complete with stunning combat (featuring the latest 3D technology), a 103% bona fide chariot race (with REAL CHARIOTS), an authentic sea battle (with REAL WATER) and a decadent and UNEXPURGATED Roman orgy (suitable for all ages), Ben Hur is the perfect winter tonic guaranteed to stir your very soul.
