Rehearsal images have been released of Ali Milles thriller The Croft starring Coronation Street‘s Gwen Taylor.
Set in a remote Scottish Highlands village, this haunting thriller follows three women from from different eras whose lives are intertwined by the croft’s dark history. The present interweaves with the past, as these women search for love in the midst of great danger. As we watch their stories intertwine and ancient tales surface, can the present heal the past?
Milles play will receive its world premiere on 22 January 2020 at Everyman Theatre Cheltenham and will then embark on a UK tour.
The cast also features Caroline Harker (Celia in BBC’s Middlemarch), Drew Cain (Mission of Honour, EastEnders), Lucy Doyle (Vienna 1934 – Munich 1938) and Simon Roberts (Mr Selfridge).
The piece is directed by Philip Franks, with design by Adrian Linford, lighting by Chris Davey, sound by Max Pappenheim and casting by Ellie Collyer-Bristow.
The Croft opens at Everyman Theatre Cheltenham 22-25 January and will then play dates at Derby Theatre, Perth Theatre, Darlington Hippodrome, Palace Theater Southend, Cambridge Arts Theatre, Ashcroft Playhouse Fairfield Halls Croydon, Theatr Clwyd Mold, Richmond Theatre, Devonshire Park Theatre Eastbourne and Belgrade Theatre Coventry.
