The play is described in press materials as "a tragic comedy of family dysfunction" in which Andy lies dying in his bed. As his wife, Bel, tries desperately to bring his estranged sons to his side, his thoughts turn to his youth, loves, lust and fears, whilst the haunting presence of the things they have all lost swirl in the dark lonely spaces of this suburban household. Bradley, who has previously appeared at the Donmar Warehouse in Sam Mendes' farewell productions of Twelfth Night and Uncle Vanya (subsequently also at New York's BAM), returns to star as Andy. Other recent theatre work includes Endgame (Gate Theatre, Dublin), No Man’s Land (Gate Theatre, Dublin and Duke of York's Theatre) and The Caretaker (Sheffield Theatres and Tricycle Theatre). At the National, he has been seen in Henry IV Parts I & II, The Night Season, The Mysteries, The Homecoming and Mother Courage, and for the RSC he has appeared in King Lear (Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actor), The Tempest, Julius Caesar and Hamlet. He is best known on film for his ongoing role as Argus Filch in the "Harry Potter" series.
