The full company has been announced for Chichester Festival Theatre’s new production of Woman In Mind by Alan Ayckbourn, directed by Anna Mackmin and running from 23 September – 15 October.
Joining Jenna Russell as Susan are: Will Attenborough as Rick, Matthew Cottle as Bill, Marc Elliott as Andy, Flora Higgins as Lucy, Stephanie Jacob as Muriel, Orlando James as Tony, and Nigel Lindsay making his Chichester debut as Gerald.
Alan Ayckbourn’s dazzling black comedy takes us on a dizzying journey through the looking glass into a woman’s mind.
A knock on the head from a garden rake splits Susan’s world in two.
Is she living happily with her devoted husband, charming brother and talented daughter, revelling in her rose-filled garden with its swimming pool and tennis court, and combining her blissful family life with a successful career? Or is Susan trapped in a suburban existence with her pedantic husband, resentful sister-in-law and estranged son, wrestling with desperate frustration at her aimless life of routine domesticity?
Which of these lives is real? Which one does she want? And is Susan in control of either of them?
Woman in Mind is at Chichester Festival Theatre 23 September – 15 October 2022
