Liverpool’s Everyman has announced the 14 actors that will form its Everyman Company 2018, which will perform a gender-swapped version of Othello.

Returning to the rep company are actors Richard Bremmer, Patrick Brennan, George Caple, Zelina Rebeiro, Keddy Sutton, Liam Tobin and Emily Hughes.

New members Emma Bispham, Nathan McMullen, Paul Duckworth, Golda Rosheuvel, Marc Elliott and Nadia Mohamad Noor will join them for its 2018 season.

The company is set to perform four plays that explore the theme of “brave new worlds” in 2018, with Rosheuvel playing the title role in a modern version of Othello.

Artistic director at the Everyman and Playhouse Gemma Bodinetz said: “Company 18 is a marriage of old and new plays, familiar faces and not so familiar faces. Last year was an extraordinary adventure into new territory – we’ve borrowed all we learnt from our first and award-winning company season and tried to do it even better.”
