Tom Conti returns to Theatre Royal after 20 years

The actor Tom Conti is appearing at Newcastle's Theatre Royal for the first time in 20 years.

This time, he plays a high-profile television journalist ("think of a Paxman or a Dimbleby", he says), who finds himself on trial for murder. The play, Rough Justice, is set in a courtroom. He said it "grips audiences from the first line".

Rough Justice is at Newcastle's Theatre Royal until 5th October. It moves to the Theatre Royal in Windsor from 7th - 12th Oct, Cheltenham's Everyman Theatre 14th - 18th Oct, and the New Theatre in Cardiff 22nd - 26th Oct.
