Orange Tree Theatre announce the full cast for the London première of Bryony Lavery’s Last Easter. Tinuke Craig directs Naana Agyei-Ampadu (June), Peter Caulfield (Gash), Jodie Jacobs (Leah), and Ellie Piercy (Joy).
Last Easter opens on 7 July, with previews from 3 July, and runs until 7 August. It will be streamed live via OT on Screen on 22 and 23 July.
A lighting designer, an actress, a prop maker and a drag singer go on a pilgrimage looking for a miracle.
Even when June, the lighting designer, is diagnosed with a devastating illness, the jokes don’t stop coming as a quartet of theatre friends career across France. They glug red wine and hope to find a miracle at Lourdes for June, a non-believer who thinks the only good thing about religion is the lighting. They’ll soon discover that miracles come in many different forms.
Last Easter is a funny, moving and provocative play about the true nature of friendship.
Completing the creative team is Designer Hannah Wolfe, Lighting Designer Elliot Griggs, and Sound Designer Beth Duke.
