Joining the previously announced John Boyega in Joe Murphy’s production will be Ben Batt (Andrews), Nancy Carroll (Maggie), Sarah Greene (Marie) and Steffan Rhodri (Captain).

It’s 1980s Berlin. The Cold War rages and the world sits at a crossroads between Capitalism and Communism. On the border between East and West, a young soldier (John Boyega) and the love of his life are desperately trying to build a better future for their child.

But the cost of escaping poverty is high, and its tragic consequences unfold in this searing tale of the people society leaves behind.

The production will feature design by Tom Scutt, lighting by Neil Austin, sound by Gareth Fry, movement by Polly Bennett, illusion by Ben Hart and original music by Isobel Waller-Bridge.

John Boyega is best known for having appeared Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and will soon appear in The Circle.

Ben Batt has been seen most recently on stage in a production of  Streetcar Named Desire (Royal Exchange Theatre).

Nancy Carroll’s previous theatre credits include roles in  The Moderate Soprano (Hampstead Theatre), Closer and The Recruiting Officer (Donmar Warehouse).

Sarah Greene is best known for her performance in The Cripple of Inishmann, both at the Noel Coward Theatre in London and on Broadway.

Steffan Rhodri is best known for his role as Dave on BBC’s Gavin and Stacey. His Stage credits include The Hairy Ape at the Old Vic Theatre and The Mentalists at the Wyndham’s Theatre.
