Casting has been announced for Horse-Play, a new comedy by Ian Hallard which opens at Riverside Studios this Autumn.
The play will star David Ames (Holby City, Steve), Matt Lapinskas (EastEnders, Hollyoaks), Jake Maskall (EastEnders, The Royals), Nick Sampson (The Book of Dust, Anthony And Cleopatra) and Stephanie Siadatan (The School for Good and Evil, High School Musical).
Matt Lapinskas said, “I’m very excited to be joining a fantastic team both cast and company, looking forward to bringing to life Ian’s work, it will be a play not to be missed!”
Jake Maskall said, “I’ve always wanted to play a superhero. And a superhero in spandex! In a dungeon with a sex god!! Beats Marvel any day. But I’m not sure I’ll be inviting my dad along…!”
Ian Hallard says: “I couldn’t be more delighted with the amazing cast we’ve assembled for Horse-Play. Possessing a wealth of experience across TV, film and theatre, they’re an exceptionally classy collection of actors, and I can’t wait to see what they end up doing with the script, and, more importantly, to see what they all look like in their spandex costumes…”
Directed by Andrew Beckett, with set and costume design by David Shields and casting by Pearson Casting, the piece is said to “explore the kinkier side of life”. Horse-Play follows two married men who decide to spice up their love lives by booking an evening at a dungeon with a male escort.
Horse-Play will run from 30 August 2022 until 24 September 2022 at Riverside Studios, London.
