Rehearsal images have been released for the world premiere of Andrew Keatley’s The Gathered Leaves. Directed by Antony Eden, the show opens at the Park Theatre on 16th July (previews from 15th July) and runs until 15th August 2015. Check out the pictures below (click image to enlarge).
Clive Francis stars as patriarch ‘William Pennington’ opposite Jane Asher as his wife ‘Olivia’. Nick Sampson, Alexander Hanson and Katie Scarfe star as their children, ‘Samuel’, ‘Giles’ and ‘Alice. The third generation is played by Amber James as ‘Aurelia’, Georgina Beedle as ‘Emily’ and Tom Hanson as ‘Simon’.
The Pennington family have not been in the same room for over 17 years. But on the eve of William’s 75th birthday, all three generations gather with the aim of putting the past well and truly behind them... if only it were that simple... The Gathered Leaves is a family drama that sees the weight of family history, of reputation, and of expectation, all descend on one family over Easter weekend in 1997.
