Casting announced for Sea Creatures at Hampstead Theatre

Casting has been announced for Cordelia Lynn’s new play Sea Creatures which opens at Hampstead Theatre on 24 March.

Sea Creatures will star Geraldine Alexander (Oslo and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, National Theatre; Bridgerton, Netflix) as Shirley, Pearl Chanda (Three Sisters, Almeida; One for Sorrow, Royal Court) as George, Thusitha Jayasundera ([BLANK], Donmar; Stories, National Theatre) as Sarah and Grace Saif (13 Reasons Why, Netflix; The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Donmar) as Toni.

They will be joined by Tom Mothersdale (Love and Other Acts of Violence, Donmar; Blue Water and Cold and Fresh, Lyric), Tony Turner (The Visit, National Theatre; This House, Chichester Festival Theatre/Garrick/National Theatre/UK tour) and June Watson (As you like it, Soho Place; A Doll’s House Part 2, Donmar).

The play centres of four women who live in a cottage by the sea. Each day they prepare meals and tell stories. When only one of their two guests arrives for the summer, it isn’t quite the reunion they were all hoping for …

Written by award winning playwright Cordelia Lynn, whose work includes Love and Other Acts of Violence (Donmar Warehouse), Three Sisters (Almeida), One for Sorrow and Lela & Co. (Royal Court), Sea Creatures will be helmed by director James Macdonald. His extensive theatre credits includes many plays by contemporary playwrights such as Caryl Churchill (Glass, Kill, Bluebeard, and Imp; Escaped Alone; Drunk Enough To Say I Love You; Top Girls; Love and Information); Florian Zeller (The Father); Mike Barlett (Wild; Cock); as well as Tennessee Williams (The Night of the Iguana) and Edward Albee (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?; A Delicate Balance).
