Producers of A Voyage Round My Father have announced further casting for the show, alongside rehearsal photos, ahead of the play’s opening at Theatre Royal Bath later this month.
As already announced, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Rupert Everett will star in John Mortimer’s celebrated autobiographical play.
Joining Rupert Everett on stage will be Jack Bardoe, Eleanor David, Allegra Marland, Julian Wadham, Heather Bleasdale, Zena Carswell, John Dougall, Calum Finlay and Richard Hodder, with Leoni Kibbey and Rob Pomfret.
Directed by multi award-winning director, and former National Theatre artistic director, Richard Eyre, A Voyage Round My Father will play the Theatre Royal Bath from 28 September to 7 October 2023, before heading out on a UK tour.
The play is also widely tipped for a West End transfer.
The play’s creative team also includes Bob Crowley (Designer), Hugh Vanstone and Sam Waddington (Co-Lighting Designers), John Leonard (Sound Designer), Stephen Warbeck (Composer), Gilly Schiller CDG (Casting Director) and Abigail Pickard Price (Assistant Director).
This highly autobiographical play shines a light on the delicate relationship between a young man and his father, a man who adored his garden and hated visitors, and whose blindness was never mentioned.
A Voyage Round My Father is produced by Robert Fox, Jonathan Church Theatre Productions and Theatre Royal Bath Productions.
