Julian Mitchell’s Another Country is to transfer to London’s West End. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the production had an acclaimed run at Chichester’s Minerva Theatre last year. The show will play March 26 through June 21 at the Trafalgar Studios.
Another Country is set at an English public school during one summer term in the 1930s. When a scandal rocks the corridors of learning, the reaction of two idealistic, rebellious students shakes the school to its foundations and has a momentous impact on their lives, their friends and even on the future of the country.
The cast includes Julian Wadham as Vaughan Cunningham, Will Attenborough as Judd, Cai Brigden as Delahay, Rob Callender as Bennett, Mark Donald as Devenish, Dario Coates as Sanderson, Bill Milner as Wharton, James Parris as Menzies and Mark Quartley as Barclay. Further casting will be announced in due course.
The production’s design is by Peter McKintosh, lighting design is by Paul Pyant and sound design is by Fergus O’Hare.
Another Country originally opened in the West End in 1982 before being adapted into film, launching the careers of Rupert Everett, Kenneth Branagh, Daniel Day Lewis and Colin Firth.
