Rediscovered Priestley Comedy Comes To Park Theatre

J B Priestley's The Roundabout at the Park Theatre

The Roundabout, a recently discovered comedy by J B Priestley comes to the Park Theatre in late August 2016. 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.

Directed by Hugh Ross, the cast of The Roundabout will include Steven Blakeley (Comrade Staggles), Lisa Bowerman (Lady Kettlewell), Bessie Carter (Pamela Kettlewell), Richenda Carey (Lady Knightsbridge), Charlie Field (Farrington Gurney), Derek Hutchinson (Parsons), Annie Jackson (Alice), Ed Pinker (Alec Grenside), Brian Proteheroe (Lord Kettlewell), Hugh Sachs (Churton Saunders) and Carol Starks (Hilda Lancicourt). … Read more
