With the critically acclaimed The Invisible Hand by Ayad Akhtar currently playing at the theatre, Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham announces the cast for the forthcoming NW Trilogy – three short plays by Moira Buffini, Suhayla El-Bushra and Roy Williams performed together for each performance.
For Waking/Walking by Suhayla El-Bushra – Anoushka Chadha (Meera Mehdi), Natasha Jayetileke (Anjali Mehdi), Rina Fatania (Susheela Parekh), Ronny Jhutti (Deepak Mehdi), and Claire Keenan (Niamh O’Connell); for The Dance Floor by Moira Buffini – Claire Keenan (Aoife Gallagher), Emmet Byrne (Sean), Aoife McMahon (Katie O’Driscoll), and Harmony Rose Bremmer (Veronica); and for The Life of Riley by Roy Williams – Harmony Rose Bremmer (Paulette) and Chris Tummings (Riley).
NW Trilogy opens on 14 September, with previews from 6 September, and running until 9 October. The trilogy, directed by Kiln Theatre Associate Directors Taio Lawson and Susie McKenna, is now on sale.
Susie McKenna said today, “We’re so excited about the cast we have assembled – some professional debuts and some very experienced veterans of the stage. Every evening they will give audiences a lively celebration of three migrant communities, where we take a journey through Kilburn and Brent and hear the different sounds, music and languages, watch our characters building a future and explore their different stories.”
Taio Lawson added, “As we move through these plays, we also get soundbites and reality checks about the hostile environments that these migrant communities were living amongst, and by doing that, it makes their stories resonate with greater vibrancy because despite that hostile environment they shone, and continue to shine so bright. After the last 18 months, it’s so important to us that we take time to come together to recognise and celebrate our local communities.”
For audience safety and the safety of staff, cast and crew, NW Trilogy will play to a reduced capacity which allows more room between audience members.
