Full casting announced for first London revival of The Vertical Hour

Full casting has been announced for the first London revival of David Hare’s The Vertical Hour. 

The production opens at the Park Theatre (Park200) on Thursday 25th September (previews from 23rd September) and runs until Sunday 26th October 2014.

Joining Peter Davison (pictured right) and Thusitha Jayasundera are: Cameron Cuffe (Dennis Dutton), Pepter Lunkuse (Terri) and Finlay Robertson (Philip). 

Directed by Nigel Douglas, The Vertical Hour is described as a "gripping play" that "pits personal philosophies against global politics." The play received its UK premiere at the Royal Court in 2008.

Nadia Blye knows exactly what her stance is on Iraq. A former war reporter and Professor of International Relations at Yale, she has advised the President and seen action in Sarajevo and Baghdad. She is sure of her place in the world and her opinion of it.

Until, that is, she meets an equally opinionated and lethally charming man – her boyfriend’s father – over a weekend in Shropshire. His intervention has far-reaching consequences for them all.
