East is East starring Jane Horrocks to run at Trafalgar Studios

Jane Horrocks is to star in a revival of East is East, which will be the second show as part of Jamie Lloyd’s season at the Trafalgar Studios in London.

The play, by Ayub Khan Din, will also see the writer appear in the show for the first time.

It will be directed by Sam Yates and will run from October 4 to January 3, 2015, with press night on October 15.

East is East premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 1997 and was later adapted by the playwright into a film.

This revival is the second show in the Trafalgar Transformed season curated by director Lloyd, following Richard III, starring Martin Freeman.

It is produced by Jamie Lloyd Productions – a joint venture between the director and the Ambassador Theatre Group.
