Intra Muros will have its UK première at Park Theatre, London from 3 April – 4 May 2019. Alexis Michalik’s latest play opened in Paris in 2017 and is still running at LaPépinière Théâtre.
Full of Michalik’s trademark sharp wit and extraordinary method of storytelling, this metatheatrical production will be directed by Ché Walker (writer of Been So Long, Flesh Wound, Crazy Love and The Frontline) who will also feature as the director within the play, Richard. The full cast will include Summer Strallen as Alice, Victor Gardener as Angel, Emma Pallant as Jane and Declan Perring as Kevin. Popular jazz artist Rio Kai will provide live music and digital sound mixing as an on-stage DJ.
Ageing thespian Richard is preparing to direct his first theatre class in a maximum security prison, assisted by his former-actress ex-wife Jane and an inexperienced social worker called Alice. When only two inmates turn up he decides to go ahead with the class nonetheless – and so begins a captivating and darkly comic exploration of life, within the walls.
