Casting has been announced for The Roundabout by JB Priestley at the Park Theatre.
Marking the play's first major revival in eighty years, The Roundabout opens on 25th August (previews from 24th August) and runs until 24th September 2016. Hugh Ross directs.
The cast includes Steven Blakeley as ‘Comrade Staggles’, Lisa Bowerman as ‘Lady Kettlewell’, Bessie Carter as ‘Pamela Kettlewell’, Richenda Carey as ‘Lady Knightsbridge, Charlie Field as ‘Farrington Gurney’, Derek Hutchinson as ‘Parsons’, Annie Jackson as ‘Alice’, Ed Pinker as ‘Alec Grenside’, Brian Protheroe as ‘Lord Kettlewell’, Hugh Sachs (pictured) as ‘Churton Saunders’ and Carol Starks as ‘Hilda Lancicourt’.
The Kettlewells are a dysfunctional family. Richard is a charming old Etonian whose business ventures are failing. Over a crowded weekend, his daughter Pamela, whom he hardly knows, returns from Russia, a passionate communist; his ex-wife and mistress both unexpectedly arrive; and his butler has a big win at the races.
