Claire Skinner will join the previously announced Ophelia Lovibond, Ukweli Roach and Sion Daniel Young in the world premiere of Barney Norris’s Nightfall.

The ‘Silk’ actress will play the formidable mother of Lovibond and Young in Norris’s family drama set on farm outside Winchester.

Skinner is best known for playing Sue Brockman from the BBC’s Outnumbered and can currently be seen on ITV’s new drama Next Of Kin.

Her numerous theatre credits include Blurred Lines, Mrs Affleck, Winter’s Tale and Othello all for the National Theatre, Deathtrap at the Noel Coward Theatre, The Father at the Wyndham’s Theatre, and most recently Prism and Rabbit Hole, both at Hampstead Theatre.

Nightfall is directed by Laurie Sansom with design by Rae Smith, lighting by Chris Davey, sound by Christopher Shutt and composed by Gareth Williams.

Nightfall runs from 28 April 2018 until 3 June 2018 at the Bridge Theatre.
