Full casting has been confirmed for Indhu Rubasingham’s production, playing at the Kiln Theatre from the 30th May.
Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham has announced casting for her production of Samuel Adamson’s Wife set to play at the Kiln Theatre from the 30th May until the 6th July.
Rubasingham is set to direct Richard Cant (Peter/Ivar at 58/Landlord), Karen Fishwick (Daisy/Clare), Pamela Hardman(Character Actress /Marjorie/Embassy Assistant), Joshua James (Robert/Finn/Ivar at 28), Calam Lynch (Eric/Cas) and Sirine Saba(Suzannah).
It’s 1959. Daisy is at a crossroads. Married to Robert but in love with Suzannah, her moral compass tells her to go one way, society the other. What she chooses to do next will have consequences not just for her and Robert, but for four couples who come after them over ninety years later.
This new play from Samuel Adamson is a study of sexuality across the ages as seen through four generations in one family. Talking about the news he said: “I’m delighted that the world première of Wife is taking place at the Kiln, and that Indhu Rubasingham is directing the play. It’s a particular honour to be a part of the opening season of the beautifully refurbished theatre, which is such a welcoming space for communities – local, national and international – to come and share stories.”
The production will feature designs by Richard Kent, lighting design by Guy Hoare, sound design by Alexander Caplen and movement direction by Diane Alison-Mitchell.
Wife will play at the Kiln Theatre from the 30th May until the 6th July.
