Miriam Margolyes, Tracy-Ann Oberman and Disney star Meaghan Martin are among the actors who will appear in the new season at London’s Park Theatre.
Margolyes will star alongside Mark Hadfield as a mother and son in the premiere of Eugene O’Hare’s black comedy Sydney and the Old Girl, which will be directed by Phillip Breen.
Oberman will also portray a mother in Evan Placey’s Mother of Him, about a single Jewish mother whose son is under house arrest. The production will be directed by Max Lindsay.
Elsewhere, Hadfield will appear in another of O’Hare’s plays, The Weatherman, which premieres in August directed by Alice Hamilton.
The line-up in Park’s larger space, Park 200, will also include Bianca Bagatourian’s The Time of Our Lies, directed by Ché Walker, which ran in Edinburgh in 2014 and explores the life of American historian Howard Zinn. It also includes a Christmas production of The Snow Queen.
In Park 90, Martin will lead the cast of the UK premiere of The Actor’s Nightmare, an anthology piece exploring the entertainment industry through satire and surreal comedy. It is written by US playwright Christopher Durang, who won a Tony award in 2013 for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.
The cast also includes Stefan Menaul and Kate Sumpter, and it will be directed by Lydia Parker.
Elsewhere in the programme will be plays by Taz Skylar and Ross Berkeley Simpson, Lesley Storm, Kate Barton, Olivia Olsen and Charlotte Jones.
The season also includes the previously announced Whodunnit [Unrehearsed], which will see a series of guest stars including Gillian Anderson, Jim Broadbent and Damian Lewis, perform in a murder mystery play having had no prior rehearsal.
