Rob Brydon's stage début in The Painkiller
One hundred days from now the Lyric Theatre will re-open in a spectacular new £18m building, and to mark the countdown it has unveiled highlights from the forthcoming season.
Brydon is set to star alongside Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller, a farce by Francis Veber. This new adaptation is by Sean Foley, who will produce with Branagh, and will open on 29 September 2011.
Brydon said on his Twitter account: "I shall be appearing in my first stage play, The Painkiller, alongside the brilliant Kenneth Branagh, in Belfast, opens 29th Sept... The play will be at the reopening Lyric. I really couldn't be more excited about it."
