RADA Interview with Daniel Mays

Try to be creative with your choices: An interview with Daniel Mays

Daniel Mays has done a fantastic interview for RADA: The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Danny attended RADA for his acting education and training: “I recognise my RADA education as a huge opportunity which has given me invaluable experience.’

Danny is currently starring in The Red Lion at the National Theatre through 30 September.
“Theatre is just intoxicating; that live scenario when the audience is getting so much out of it – if you could bottle that feeling, it would be wonderful.”

The Red Lion Public Booking Now Open


Public booking for The Red Lion is now open at the National Theatre website for all dates from 3 June (first preview) and including the additional dates from 31 July through 30 September (last performance).

Friday Rush ticketing will be ongoing through out the run and include performances that are sold out! More information is available on The National Theatre’s FAQ page.

The Red Lion

Small-time semi-pro football, the non-league. A world away from the wealth and the television cameras. A young player touched with brilliance arrives from nowhere. An ambitious manager determines to make him his own. And the old soul of the club still has dreams of glory.

A haunting and humorous new play about the dying romance of the great English game – and the tender, savage love that powers it.

Cast includes Daniel Mays, Calvin Demba, and Peter Wight.
