Skeleton Crew - Donmar Warehouse- Cast

Cast revealed for Skeleton Crew at the Donmar Warehouse

Casting has been announced for the UK premiere of Skeleton Crew at the Donmar Warehouse.

Tobi Bamtefa (Mayor of Kingstown), Branden Cook (Masters of the Air, Chicago PD), Oliver Award nominee Pamela Nomvete (To Kill a Mockingbird, West End, Andor, Gangs of London) and Racheal Ofori (Artemis Fowl, Ready Player One) will star in Dominique Morisseau’s acclaimed 2016 drama, Skeleton Crew.

Nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Play, during its 2022 Broadway run, Morisseau’s play delves into the human impact of the 2008 financial crisis. The drama centres on a close-knit group of factory workers in Detroit’s automotive industry, highlighting their struggles and resilience amid economic turmoil.

A late addition to outgoing Artistic Director Michael Longhurst’s final Donmar spring/summer season, Skeleton Crew follows in the footsteps of Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Sweat, another hard-hitting play that explores the impact of economic decline on working-class communities.

Directed by Olivier Award-winner Matthew Xia (Feeling Afraid As If Something Terrible Is Going To Happen), the creative team includes ULTZ as the designer, Ciarán Cunningham as the lighting designer, Nicola T. Chang as the composer and sound designer, Ingrid Mackinnon as the movement director, Aundrea Fudge as the voice and dialect coach, and Grace Duggan as the resident assistant director.

The current season included: a 5-star revival of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard starring Adeel Akhtar and Nina Hoss and the romantic dramaThe Human Body with TV stars Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard, Line of Duty) and Jack Davenport (Call My Agent, The Morning Show). Longhurst finishes his run at The Donmar with two West End transfers: Next To Normal transferring to Wyndham’s Theatre this June, and Macbeth with David Tennant and Cush Jumbo transferring to the Harold Pinter Theatre this October.

Skeleton Crew runs from 28 June to 24 August 2024 at the Donmar Warehouse.
