Casting announced for world premiere of Game by Mike Bartlett

Casting has been announced for the world premiere of Mike Bartlett's provocative new play Game which opens at the Almeida Theatre on 3rd March (previews from 23rd February) and runs until 4th April 2015.

The cast includes: Georgina Beedle, Clare Burt, Daniel Cerqueira, Kevin Harvey, Chloe Hesar, Jodie McNee, Mike Noble, Ben Righton, Richard Sumitro and Susan Wokoma. 

In a housing crisis, a young couple are offered a home of their own. But at what price? Invasive and unsettling, Game invites us to spy on a family as they explore a dangerous new way to live.

Mike Bartlett returns to the Almeida following King Charles III with this radically different play. King Charles III continues in the West End until 31st January whilst Bartlett’s play Bull currently runs at the Young Vic. 

Director Sacha Wares is joined by award-winning designer Miriam Buether following their previous collaborations on Wild Swans, Sucker Punch, My Child, Guantanamo, Platform and generations.

Wares and Buether will dramatically reconfigure the Almeida’s auditorium for this "ground-breaking" production. Seated in four separate zones, the audience will experience an unnervingly intimate view of the action. Game will be general admission.

The show has lighting by Jack Knowles, sound by Gareth Fry, video by Leo Warner of 59 Productions and movement by Leon Baugh.
