Lizzy Connolly, Harry Enfield & John Marquez to star in Once in a Lifetime at the Young Vic

Further casting has been announced for Once in a Lifetime at the Young Vic.

Harry Enfield and Lizzy Connolly join John Marquez and Claudie Blakley in the play. 

Also joining the cast are Daniel Abelson, Okorie Chukwu, Lucy Cohu, Buffy Davis, Otto Farrant, Amy Griffiths and Amanda Lawrence. Further casting is still to be announced.

Richard Jones’ production opens on 6th December 2016 (previews from 25th November) and runs until 14th January 2017. Once in a Lifetime is by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman and adapted by Christopher Hart.

Three actors in a struggling vaudeville troupe travel West to try their luck in 1930s Hollywood. With the advent of talking pictures, it’s a changing industry. A chance meeting with a film journalist gives May, George and Jerry an idea: brimming with chutzpah they found a school of elocution for starlets of the silver screen, to help them adapt to ‘talkies’. When their scheme takes off they are plunged into the frenetic world of a Hollywood studio, full of glitz and glamour – but as their responsibilities escalate, will the lustre last?
