Casting for the world premiere of Kieron Barry’s two hander play, which will open at the Riverside Studios next month. Directed by Lucy Jane Atkinson, the production will star Olive Gray (Halo) and Amy Lennox (Cabaret).

Olive Gray  can currently be seen starring as Miranda Keyes in the Paramount+ series Halo alongside Pablo Schreiber and Natascha McElhone. It was released at the end of March 2022 and begins shooting a second season this year. In 2020 they wee seen in the lead role (Grace) opposite Lennie James in the second series of Sky Atlantic’s Save Me Too for which they received fantastic reviews. Before that they were seen playing one of the lead roles (Jess) in BBC1 4-part series Dark Money opposite Jill Halfpenny and Babou Ceesay.

Amy Lennox is most famous for playing the lead role of Sally Bowles in Cabaret at the Playhouse Theatre. Her other theatrical credits include the original West End productions of Legally Blonde and Kinky Boots for which she was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical. She played Ellie in the David Bowie and Enda Walsh musical Lazarus when it played a limited season at the Kings Cross Theatre.

Sarah and Molly are two Californians who love each other – and that’s all they have in common. As the uptight lawyer and the free-spirited dreamer strive to make their improbable relationship work, we see them break up, meet the parents, move in together and fall in love – all in a completely random sequence.

Director Lucy Jane Atkinson said, “I am so excited to be working with Olive and Amy on this show. They each bring with them a wealth of experience on stage and screen, as well as a playfulness, bravery, and enthusiasm which suits them perfectly to this piece. I can’t wait to get into rehearsal and see them bring these characters to life.”

The creative team behind the production includes: designer Bethia Jane Green with lighting design by Holly Ellis and sound design by Anna Short. Spy for Spy is a co-production between Feather Productions, led by Anna Murphy, and TeamAkers – the TV production company led by Laurence Akers and Suranne Jones, making their first foray into theatre production.
