Park Theatre Artistic Director Jez Bond has announced the full cast for the first London revival of David Hare’s The Vertical Hour. Joining Peter Davison and Thusitha Jayasundera will be Cameron Cuffe in the role of Dennis Dutton, Pepter Lunkuse as Terri and Finlay Robertson as Philip. The play, which received its UK premiere at the Royal Court in 2008, will be directed by Nigel Douglas and opens on 25 September, with previews from 23 September, running until 26 October.

Nadia Blye knows exactly what her stance is on Iraq. A former war reporter and Professor of International Relations at Yale, she has advised the President and seen action in Sarajevo and Baghdad. She is sure of her place in the world and her opinion of it.

Until, that is, she meets an equally opinionated and lethally charming man – her boyfriend’s father – over a weekend in Shropshire. His intervention has far-reaching consequences for them all.

A gripping play that pits personal philosophies against global politics.

The Vertical Hour is presented by Oliver Taheri Productions in association with Mini Productions Ltd, Gareth Bennett-Ryan and Park Theatre. The play is directed by Nigel Douglas with Set Design by Charlie Damigos, Lighting Design by Julian McCready and Sound Design by Harry Barker
