Emily Dobbs productions has announced that Ripper Street co-stars Adam Rothenberg and Lydia Wilson will star in the final production at the pop up theatre Found111, running from the 26th October until the 17th December.
Director Simon Evans (“The Dazzle”, “Bug”) triumphantly returns to Found111 to direct this production of Sam Shepard’s Fool for Love.
Confined to a run-down motel room Eddie and May spit truth and lies at each other as they fight for a love that they can’t live with, or without. Past, present and reality collide in this searingly funny, dark portrayal of love, loss and identity set against the stark backdrop of the Mojave Desert.
This production will see New Jersey-born Adam Rothenberg, making his awaited London stage debut, and Olivier award-nominated Lydia Wilson performing in the show. The pair have starred together in BBC1’s hit detective series, Ripper Street.
Rothenberg has also played Stanley Kowalski opposite Patricia Clarkson in the Kennedy Centre’s A Streetcar Named Desire. Meanwhile, Lydia Wilson was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Olivier as Kate Middleton in Rupert Goold’s King Charles III at the Almeida, West End and on Broadway.
Adam said: “I’m thrilled to have been invited to London to be a part of such a wonderful play. Its a dream part. It’s going to be doubly exciting to play opposite Lydia Wilson again. We had such a great time on Ripper Street together and I look forward to getting to do this part opposite her.”
Lydia said: “I’m so excited to work on this iconic play at Found111 – I remember as a teenager running around the old St Martin’s School of Art building. And I’m delighted to be working again with the immensely talented Adam Rothenberg.”
The cast will also include Joe McGann and Luke Neal. Meanwhile the production will also feature designs by Ben Stones, lighting by Elliot Griggs and Composer and Sound Design by Edward Lewis.
Fool for Love will run at Found111 from the 26th October until the 17th December. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://found111.co.uk/fool-for-love/.
