Inspired by Moliere's farcical, tragic, anarchic Don Juan (1665), Patrick Marber's Don Juan in Soho transports the action to contemporary London and follows the debauched protagonist's final adventures.
Don Juan in Soho premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in December 2006. This edition of the text incorporates revisions made for the play's revival at Wyndham's Theatre, London, in 2017, directed by the author.
