This production will begin performances on 24 January 2024.

This house. It’s called ‘Sea View’. It’s just I’ve looked out of every window, and you can’t. You can’t see the sea.

Blackpool, 1976. The driest summer in 200 years. The beaches are packed. The hotels are

heaving. In the sweltering backstreets, far from the choc ices and donkey rides, the Webb

Sisters are returning to their mother's run-down guest house, as she lies dying upstairs.

Following their multi-award-winning triumph, The Ferryman, Jez Butterworth, writer of Jerusalem, and Sam Mendes, director of The Lehman Trilogy, return to the West End to bring you The Hills of California. The latest play from the acclaimed playwright will run at Harold Pinter Theatre, for a limited season, from 27 January 2024.

Casting for the production will be announced in due course.
