It’s Headed Straight Towards Us at the Park Theatre: Nenda Neururer joins Rufus Hound & Samuel West

Adrian Edmondson and Nigel Planer’s new comedy It’s Headed Straight Towards Us has revealed full casting ahead of its world premiere at the Park Theatre this September 2023.

Nenda Neururer (Death of a Salesman, The Rising) is set to join the cast as Leela, alongside the previously announced cast of Rufus Hound as Gary Savage and Samuel West as Hugh Delavois.

Billed as a quirky, surprisingly tender, laugh out loud comedy, It’s Headed Straight Towards Us is directed by Rachel Kavanaugh (The Great British Bake Off Musical), and written by British actor-comedians Adrian Edmondson and Nigel Planer, who rose to fame in TV comedies The Comic Strip Presents, and the BAFTA award-winning cult classic The Young Ones.

In the show, two actors are stuck in a trailer on the side of a volcano, in Iceland. The glacier is melting, the volcano is active, and bitter rivalries start to emerge between fussy ‘bit part’ actor Hugh Delavois and fading Hollywood bad boy Gary Savage, going back to their time at college together.

Stuck with them is 21-year-old Leela, the runner on the film, and supposed seismology expert. As their arguments and point-scoring become increasingly fractious, it is down to Leela to contain their petty squabbles and prepare them for the possibility that they may not get out of this alive.

Produced by Jonathan Church Theatre Productions and RJG Productions, the comedy is running at the Park Theatre from 13 September to 20 October 2023.
