Cast Announced for The Gift of The Gab at The White Bear Theatre

The Gift of the Gab, written and directed by Simon David Eden, is a satire that uses humour to expose the ignorance that fosters casual bigotry, and the fallout for any group or culture when greed drives individuals to put themselves before all others.

The bitter Winter of Discontent, 1979. The whole nation is at war with itself, battling industrial strikes, severe unemployment, crippling inflation and fears over immigration and home-grown terrorism. But that’s not going to cramp the style of a den of thieves in Brighton. Unreconstructed, old-school grifters, they live by their wits and some very shady mores and morals. But even they know the end of an era is nigh and their days are numbered, so each is after one last big score before the law and society’s shifting sands catch up to them. And if that score should happen to contain a priceless lost memoir and a beguiling young waitress from Naples, so much the better!

The cast comprises: Ross Boatman, Madalina Bellariu, Michael Roberts, Charlie Allen, Ivanhoe Norona, Harold Addo and Lewis Bruniges.

The Gift of the Gab will get its world premiere at the White Bear, Kennington from Tuesday 15 May to Saturday 9 June.
