The Almeida Theatre today announces the full cast for Tinuke Craig’s production of Maxim Gorky’s Vassa, in a new version by Mike Bartlett. There are no miracles in this world. Only those we make for ourselves. It’s 8am and a revolt is underway. The father is dying. The son is spying. The wife is cheating. The uncle is stealing. The mother is scheming. The dynasty is crumbling. One house. One fortune. One victor. The cast of Vassa includes Samantha Bond, Alexandra Dowling, Arthur Hughes, Daniella Isaacs, Amber James, Danny Kirrane, Kayla Meikle, Cyril Nri, Lee Ross and Sophie Wu. Vassa is directed by Tinuke Craig, design by Fly Davis, lighting by Joshua Pharo, sound design by Emma Laxton, movement by Jenny Ogilvie, and casting by Annelie Powell CDG. Vassa runs at the Almeida Theatre from 5 October to 23 November 2019.
