The Mercury Theatre Colchester has announced the full cast for the World Premiere of Oliver Bennett's new play Europe After The Rain.

Europe After The Rain Mercury Theatre Colchester

Imagine. The USA has pulled out of NATO and refugees from the Ukraine are flocking into Western Europe; while, on a ‘fake beach’ somewhere in Middle England, Will, Max, Yana and Marta are gathered to find out whether the unfolding general election is really going to put a populist party into power and change their lives forever.

Europe After The Rain is a theatrical and funny exploration of what waking up in a post-EU Britain might feel like. Winner of the Mercury Playwriting Prize 2017, Oliver Bennett’s first full-length play is a comedy about immigration, globalisation, love and loss. The Mercury Playwriting Prize was created to support new plays and new playwrights.

Europe After The Rain will feature James Alexandrou as Will, Simon Haines as Max, Natasha Kafka as Marta and Anna Koval as Yana.  The play will be directed by Cara Nolan, designed by Amelia Jane Hankin, lighting design by Kiaran Kesby, sound design by Nuno Santos, and fight direction by Craig Hamblyn.

Europe After The Rain will be presented at the Mercury Theatre Colchester from 25 May - 9 June 2018.
