Further cast has been revealed ahead of the West End premiere of Theresa Rebeck’s new play Mad House at the Ambassadors Theatre in London.
Joining Stranger Things star David Harbour as Michael and Hollywood actor Bill Pullman as Daniel will be Olivier Award nominee Stephen Wight (I May Destroy You) as Nedward, Akiya Henry (Much Ado About Nothing – RSC) as Lillian, Hanako Footman (The Crown) as Devon, Sinead Matthews (Hullraisers, The Crown) as Pam, Charlie Oscar (Doctor Who) as Skylar.
Billed as dark and funny, the new play runs from 26 June to 4 September 2022 and is directed by Hand To God director Moritz von Stuelpnagel.
The production reunites Rebeck and von Stuelpnagel following their collaborations on Bernhardt/Hamlet and Seared. Both David Harbour and Bill Pullman have appeared in the West End before: Harbour in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at the Apollo Theatre, and Pullman in All My Sons at The Old Vic.
Mad House is set in rural Pennsylvania, where Michael (David Harbour) has returned to his childhood home to look after his dying father. His siblings Ned and Pam soon arrive, determined to work out how much money Dad actually has left and how they’re getting their hands on it.
Currently playing at the Ambassadors Theatre is COCK, directed by Marianne Elliot and starring Taron Egeerton and Jonathan Bailey.
