Casting has been announced for the world premiere of Hatched ‘n’ Dispatched, a black comedy set in the industrial north of England by Gemma Page and Michael Kirk.
The play opens at the Park Theatre on 2nd September (previews from 1st September) for a limited run until 26th September 2015.
The cast includes: Wendi Peters (Coronation Street/Oh What a Lovely War), Diana Vickers (The X Factor/The Duck House), Vicky Binns (Coronation Street/Singin’ in the Rain), Matthew Fraser Holland, (Code of a Killer), Kevin McGowan (Death and The Maiden), Wendy Morgan (A Streetcar Named Desire), James Wrighton (Idiots of Ants) and Danielle Flett (Noises Off).
It is 1959 and you are invited to a party. The Needham family have buried Uncle Arthur and christened Baby Clifford in a double booking at the church. As Dorothy-Mavis takes charge of preparations for the after-party, tensions erupt and toxic secrets threaten to destroy her family. But she is not a woman to let family love come between her and social respectability - whatever the cost.
Direction is from Michael Kirk with design by Rachel Stone, lighting by Derek Anderson and casting by Anne Vosser.
