The first publicity images featuring the cast of Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company’s Harlequinade and All on Her Own have been released today.
These two pieces of work, playing alongside The Winter’s Tale from the 17th October at the Garrick Theatre, marks the start of the year long Plays at the Garrick Season at the theatre.
Harlequinade is a rarely seen comic piece, in which a classical theatre company attempts to produce The Winter’s Tale and Romeo and Juliet – while the intrigues of the company members themselves are accidently revealed with increasingly hilarious consequences.
Kenneth Branagh will be playing Harlequinade’s actor-manager Arthur Gosport as well as co-directing the production with Rob Ashford.
Harlequinade will also star Tom Bateman (Jack Wakefield), Miranda Raison (Edna Selby) and Zoe Wanamaker (Dame Maud).
In addition to her role in Harlequinade, Zoe Wanamkaer will also be performing Terence Rattigan’s dramatic monologue All on Her Own – which has never been performed in the West End. It will be performed every evening prior to Harlequinade.
Other productions to be taking place during the inaugural season of work from the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company include: The Winter’s Tale, The Painkiller, Romeo and Juliet and The Entertainer.
Harlequinade/All On Her Own will appear at the Garrick Theatre from the 17th October until 16th January 2016.
