Actors Peter Duncan and Miles Jupp are to feature in the Park Theatre’s new season.
Jupp will star in James Kettle’s The Life I Lead at the London venue, which explores the life of actor David Tomlinson.
The play, which is produced by Jonathan Church Productions and Exeter Northcott Theatre in association with the Park, runs from March 18 to March 30, 2019.
Duncan will star as a pantomime dame in The Dame by Katie Duncan, which runs from January 2 to 26.
Other highlights include the world premiere of historical drama Rosenbaum’s Rescue by A. Bodin Saphir, which explores how over 7,000 Danish Jews managed to evade the Nazis in the First World War.
Jonathan Maitland’s The Last Temptation of Boris Johnson focuses on the controversial politician, while Tom Wright’s comedy My Dad’s Gap Year follows a dad who takes his gay son on a trip to Thailand.
The season also includes Martin Sherman’s Gently Down The Stream, which previously ran at New York’s Public Theatre, Alexis Michalik’s Intra Muros, Meghan Kennedy’s Napoli, Brooklyn and Tuyen Do’s Summer Rolls.
Artistic director Jez Bond said: “With a season that includes British, American, French, Danish and Vietnamese playwrights, I’m excited to announce an eclectic season of predominantly new writing that promises something for everyone.”
