Photos: Jane Asher in The Circle – rehearsal pictures

Photos are in of rehearsals for the forthcoming Orange Tree Theatre production of The Circle starring Jane Asher.

Directed by Tom Littler, this new revival of Somerset Maugham’s  play features Jane Asher as Lady Catherine Champion-Cheney, alongside Pete Ashmore (Arnold Champion-Cheney), Chirag Benedict Lobo (Teddie Luton), Clive Frances (Clive Champion-Cheney), Nicholas Le Prevost (Lord Hughie Porteous) and Olivia Vinall (Elizabeth Champion-Cheney).

Joining Littler in the creative team is Designer Louie Whitemore; Lighting Designer Chris McDonnell; Sound Designer Max Pappenheim; and Assistant Director Sam Woof.

The sun is shining on the manicured lawns of the Dorset home of Arnold Champion-Cheney, MP. The Great War is over. Arnold’s political career is blossoming. He has a beautiful young wife, Elizabeth. If only the servants would dust his antiques properly, everything would be perfect. But Arnold’s idyllic life is about to explode into chaos. His rakish father is staying for the weekend. His scandalous long-lost mother is descending with her detested husband in tow. And there’s a dashing young stranger who seems far too interested in Elizabeth… Will history come full circle? Or can one generation learn from their parents’ disastrous mistakes?

The Circle runs at the Orange Tree Theatre from 29 April to 17 June 2023.
