David Cantor’s play directed by Georgia Leanne Harris arrives at the theatre from the 18th July.
It’s been twenty-one nights since Dexy last slept. It could be down to his choice of pillow. Duck Down. It could be down the heating in his flat. Nonexistent. Or it could be the fact his girlfriend’s missing, the police are scouring the streets and Dexy’s past is catching up with him.
David Cantor’s play explores sleep deprivation, existential angst, alternative realities… oh and of course sheep.
The production will see Ciaran Lonsdale star as Dexy (World Mad, Soho Theatre; Glamour Girl, Maltings Arts Theatre), with James Groom as Leo (Simon Stephen’s Christmas, White Bear Theatre; Robert Dudley Earl in the Channel 5 drama Elizabeth), Niamh Watson as Margot (Amber in Dreamless Sleep, Arts Theatre; Still I See My Baby, Sky or the Bird) and Bruce Kitchener as Vic (Frank in Snapshot, Hope Theatre; Four Thieves Vinegar, Baron’s Court Theatre).
Writer David Cantor has previously written for television and the stage, working on a variety of shows including three of the BBC’s most successful sitcoms, My Family, Two Pints Of Lager & A Packet Of Crisps, and The Green Green Grass. His stage plays include . Stopping Distance which had a full cast read through at the Old Vic and is currently in development at The Park Theatre, while I Play For Me was performed at the White Bear in Kennington in 2015.
