The cast for Catherine-Anne Toupin’s Right Now at the Bush Theatre has been announced as rehearsals for the production begin.
Directed by former Royal Shakespeare Company Artistic Director Michael Boyd, the play looks at one woman’s crisis and her darkest desires, walking a fine line between laughter and trauma that has the ability to thrill and tease audiences.
This new show of Catherine-Anne Toupin’s play is a co-production between the Bush Theatre, Traverse theatre Company and Theatre Royal Bath Ustinov Studio.
Talking about the production, Director Michael Boyd said: “Our challenge to do justice to this heart-breaking, hilarious and disturbing play begins today, and I couldn’t feel better equipped than with this brilliant dare-devil cast.”
Casting for the production includes: Maureen Beattie, Sean Biggerstaff, Lindsey Campbell, Dyfan Dwyfor and Guy Williams.
As Alice and Ben settle into their beautiful new flat they realise that the family across the hall hope to be more than just good neighbours. Soon, Juliette, Giles, and their son Francis are wearing out the welcome mat; suggesting drinks, hors d’oeuvres and dancing. Things begin to heat up as innocent invitations lead to passionate encounters and unsettling revelations.
