The Orange Tree Theatre announces the full cast for Jack Thorne’s The Solid Life of Sugar Water. JMK Award Winner Indiana Lown-Collins directs Katie Erich and Adam Fenton.
The award provides Lown-Collins the opportunity to stage her own full-scale Orange Tree show production where she will work with designer Ica Niemz.
Alice and Phil bare every messy, painful, hilarious, irritating, delightful, loving detail of their relationship as it bends and shifts to everything life throws at them. Nothing goes unshared …
Writer Jack Thorne (Channel 4’s Skins and This Is England) thrillingly amplifies disabled voices in this witty, impassioned and intimate play. Following its 2015 premiere at Edinburgh Festival Fringe as a Graeae Theatre Company and Theatre Royal Plymouth co-production, The Solid Life of Sugar Water went on a UK tour and transferred to the National Theatre for a critically acclaimed run in 2016.
Katie Erich plays Alice. Her theatre credits include Oliver Twist (Leeds Playhouse – nominated for The Stage Debut Award for Best Performer in a Play), Different Owners at Sunrise (The Roundhouse), Aladdin (CAST), and for television, Doctors.
Adam Fenton plays Phil. As an actor, their credits include Living Archive (Royal Court), Rogue Comet(s) (HOME), Talking Bodies (Hot Coals Theatre), Not Serious (Oldham Coliseum), The Howling (Graeae Theatre Company) and //Tuning In// (Theatre by the Lake).
The Solid Life of Sugar Water opens at Orange Tree Theatre on 19 October, with previews from 15 October, and runs until 12 November. It will be available via OT On Screen between 15–18 November.
