There’s no stopping Paul Mescal.

The Maynooth man, who is celebrating his 27th birthday this week, has just gotten his first Oscar nomination. And now he has even more to celebrate.

Paul is currently starring in the latest stage production of A Streetcar Named Desire in London. The show is moving to a big theatre later this year, with tickets going on sale this week.

Unsurprisingly, the tickets were snapped up almost immediately!

In fact, they broke records as when they went on general sale, the show sold out within two hours. No small feat!

The first production of the play, which has been running since December, sold out in under 24 hours before a second run was announced at the Phoenix Theatre in the West End for six weeks.

Tickets for the extended run went on pre-sale on 31st January and then on general sale today only to sell in two hours.

According to What’s On Stage, it is the fastest-selling production in an Ambassador Theatre Group venue.

The production will run from March 20th until April 29th.

The play follows two sisters, Blanche and Stella, as they reunite after years apart. However, Blanche is running from her past and Stella’s husband Stanley is stalking closer to the truth. Reality and illusion collide and a violent conflict changes their lives forever.
