New rehearsal photos and publicity still for Linck & Mülhahn at Hampstead Theatre have been released ahead of the shows first performance later this week.
Ruby Thomas’ epic love story, inspired by eighteenth century court documents, centres on the extraordinary true lives of a gender pioneering couple – dashing soldier Anastasius Linck and the rebellious Catharina Mülhahn.
Maggie Bain (Man to Man, Wales Millennium Centre; Henry V, Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre) plays the role of Anastasius Linck with Helena Wilson (Jack Absolute Flies Again, National Theatre; The Lady from the Sea, Donmar) playing the role of Catharina Mülhahn and Lucy Black (The Durrells, ITV; The Haystack, Hampstead Theatre) playing Mother.
The cast is completed by Daniel Abbott, David Carr, Marty Cruickshank, Kammy Darweish, Qasim Mahmood, Leigh Quinn and Timothy Speyer.
The creative team includes Owen Horsley (director), Simon Wells (design), Matt Daw (lighting), Max Pappenheim (sound), Dewi Johnson (assistant direction), Rachel Bown-Williams (fight and intimacy direction) and Ruth Cooper Brown (fight and intimacy direction).
Linck & Mülhahn runs from 27 January 2023 until 4 March 2023 at Hampstead Theatre, London.
