The cast has been announced as rehearsals began yesterday for Right Now, a co-production between the Bush Theatre, Traverse Theatre Company and Theatre Royal Bath Ustinov Studio.
The roles of Juliette, Ben, Alice, Francis, and Giles will be played by Maureen Beattie, Sean Biggerstaff, Lindsey Campbell, Dyfan Dwyfor and Guy Williams respectively.
The co-production, directed by former RSC Artistic Director Michael Boyd, runs at the Bush Theatre from 23rd March to 16th April 2016.
Director Michael Boyd said: ‘Our challenge to do justice to this heart-breaking, hilarious and disturbing play begins today, and I couldn’t feel better equipped than with this brilliant dare-devil cast.’
Written by Catherine-Anne Toupin and translated by Chris Campbell, Right Now is a disquieting exploration of one woman’s crisis and darkest desires. It walks a delicate line between playful laughter and deep trauma, teasing and thrilling audiences from beginning to end.
Plot: As Alice and Ben settle into their beautiful new flat they realise that the family across the hall hope to be more than just good neighbours. Soon, Juliette, Giles and their son Francis are wearing out the welcome mat; suggesting drinks, hors d’oeuvres and dancing. Things begin to heat up as innocent invitations lead to passionate encounters and unsettling revelations.
