Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
Soho Theatre announces the full casting for two world premieres, both playwriting stage debuts, of David Baddiel’s God’s Dice and Cassiopeia Berkeley-Agyepong and Simone Ibbett-Brown’s Shuck ‘n’ Jive.
• Alexandra Gilbreath, Nitin Ganatra, Leila Mimmack and Adam Strawford will join the previously announced Alan Davies in God’s Dice directed by James Grieve.
• Olivia Onyehara and Tanisha Spring are announced as cast of Shuck ‘n’ Jive directed by Soho Theatre’s Associate Director Lakesha Arie-Angelo.
David Luff, Creative Director of Soho Theatre, comments:
“We’re thrilled to be producing two debut plays this autumn, showcasing the depth and breadth of artistic talent at Soho Theatre whilst continuing to strengthen our programme of bold new plays. Following many years on our stages as a comedian, David Baddiel’s playwriting debut features a fantastic cast led by Alan Davies. Also this autumn, our Associate Director Lakesha Arie-Angelo directs the exciting debut by Cassiopeia Berkeley-Agyepong and Simone Ibbett-Brown, an unexpected and subversive story of two young women trying to find their theatrical feet in a closed-shop world.”
