Producers of Casa Valentina have released an amazing video of the cast transforming into character (see below). Written by Harvey Fierstein based on real life events, the play follows a group of heterosexual cross-dressers who leave their families, friends and city jobs behind to safely inhabit their female alter egos and release their inner woman.
Marking the play's European premiere, Casa Valentina opens at the Southwark Playhouse on 16th September (previews from 10th September) for a limited run until 10th October 2015. Luke Sheppard directs with costume by Andrew Riley, lighting by Howard Hudson, set by Justin Nardella and casting by Will Burton CDG.
The cast includes: Tamsin Carroll (Rita), Ben Deery (Jonathan/Miranda), Charlie Hayes (Eleanor), Bruce Montague (Theodore/ Terry), Robert Morgan (The Judge/Amy), Matt Rixon (Albert/Bessie), Ashley Robinson (Michael/Gloria), Gareth Snook (Charlotte/Isadore) and Edward Wolstenholme (George/Valentina).
