Casting has been announced for the London premiere of Bryony Lavery’s Last Easter at the Orange Tree Theatre.
Richmond’s Orange Tree Theatre has announced the complete cast for Bryony Lavery’s play Last Easter to be directed by Tinuke Craig.
Cast includes Naana Agyei-Ampadu (June), Peter Caulfield (Gash), Jodie Jacobs (Leah), and Ellie Piercy (Joy).
A lighting designer, an actress, a prop maker and a drag singer go on a pilgrimage looking for a miracle.
Even when June, the lighting designer, is diagnosed with a devastating illness, the jokes don’t stop coming as a quartet of theatre friends career across France. They glug red wine and hope to find a miracle at Lourdes for June, a non-believer who thinks the only good thing about religion is the lighting. They’ll soon discover that miracles come in many different forms.
Last Easter is a funny, moving and provocative play about the true nature of friendship.
Last Easter opens at the Orange Tree Theatre on 7 July, with previews from 3 July, and runs until 7 August. It will be streamed live via OT on Screen on 22 and 23 July.
Completing the creative team is Designer Hannah Wolfe, Lighting Designer Elliot Griggs, and Sound Designer Beth Duke.
