    , Prior To Harlequinade Each Night, As Part Of A Never-Before-Seen
    Double Bill

    Oscar Nominated Composer Patrick Doyle Will Write Scores For Both The Winter’s Tale And Harlequinade / All On Her Own

    Harlequinade / All On Her Own Will Play In Repertory With The Winter’s Tale From 17 October Until 16 January 2016

    Further casting for the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company’s Plays at the Garrick season
    has been announced. John Dagleish and Zoë Wanamaker are to appear in Harlequinade,
    with John also joining the company of The Winter’s Tale. The two productions will play in
    repertory at the Garrick theatre from 17 October 2015 until 16 January 2016.
    In addition to playing Dame Maud in Harlequinade, Zoë Wanamaker, one of the best actors
    of our generation, will also perform Terence Rattigan’s dramatic monologue All On Her
    Own, which has never before played in the West End. In this brief but powerfully
    atmospheric play, which will be performed every evening prior to Harlequinade, a woman
    with a secret, alone at midnight in London has a burden to share that is at times both
    heart-breaking and sinister. This never-before-seen double bill celebrates the contrast in
    Rattigan’s astonishing range. Zoё Wanamaker will not appear in The Winter’s Tale.
    John Dagleish, who won an Olivier Award this year for his portrayal of Ray Davies in the
    acclaimed Kinks musical Sunny Afternoon, will appear in Harlequinade and The Winter’s
    Tale. John joins other cast members Pierre Atri, Jaygann Ayeh, Tom Bateman, Kenneth
    Branagh, Jessie Buckley, Vera Chok, Jack Colgrave Hirst, Judi Dench, Hadley Fraser, Rudi
    Goodman, Matthew Hawksley, Pip Jordan, Ansu Kabia, Stuart Neal, Michael Pennington,
    Zoё Rainey, Miranda Raison, John Shrapnel, Kathryn Wilder and Jimmy Yuill.

    Kenneth Branagh said: “Zoë Wanamaker is a brilliant comedienne and a great tragic
    actress too. In joining us for the Rattigan comedy we seized on the opportunity to let her
    show us the dramatic side of a playwright also known as ‘the English Chekhov’. The rarely 
    seen All On Her Own provides a fabulous woman’s role, and makes for an intriguingly
    balanced double bill. John Dagleish's brilliant musicality was sensational in Sunny
    Afternoon. I'm very excited to hear what he and our superb composer Patrick Doyle, bring
    to the music of Shakespeare's great con man, Autolycus, in The Winter’s Tale.”
    Patrick Doyle is a Scottish composer. Working together most recently on the 2015 feature
    film of Cinderella, Doyle is a long-time collaborator of Kenneth Branagh, known for his
    work composing for films such as Henry V, Sense and Sensibility, Hamlet, and Gosford
    Park, as well as Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Eragon, Rise of the Planet of the
    Apes and Thor. Doyle has been nominated for two Academy Awards and two Golden Globe
    Awards, and is the recipient of the ASCAP Henry Mancini Award for "outstanding
    achievements and contributions to the world of film and television music".

    Kenneth Branagh said: “I’ve been working with Patrick Doyle for nearly 30 years since our
    first theatrical collaboration on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. His instinct for music in the
    theatre remains as sharp as his ear for his award winning movie scores. His interplay with
    both mediums brings melodic power, a sure sense of drama, and exciting musical invention
    to the Garrick season.”

    Zoë Wanamaker, CBE, was most recently seen on the London stage in Stevie at the
    Hampstead Theatre. The recipient of two Olivier Awards for Best Actress, Zoë has
    previously starred in the National Theatre productions of The Cherry Orchard, Much Ado About Nothing and The Rose Tattoo, and in the West End, Passion Play
    and All My Sons. Zoë received Tony Award nominations for her performances in
    Piaf, Loot, Electra, and Awake and Sing on Broadway. Television credits include My
    Family, Poirot, Doctor Who, and Mr. Selfridge, as well as film roles in Harry Potter, My
    Week with Marilyn and Wilde.

    John Dagleish, recently won an Olivier Award for his performance as Ray Davies in the hit
    musical Sunny Afternoon, currently playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre. He was last on
    stage in Out of Joint’s The Mother. Film appearances include The Monuments Men, Snow
    in Paradise and Age of Heroes. Notable television credits include: Truckers, Lark Rise to
    Candleford, Beaver Falls, Starlings and Henry V, The Hollow Crown.

    The Winter’s Tale, Harlequinade, All On Her Own, The Painkiller, Romeo and Juliet
    and The Entertainer make up the inaugural season of work for the Kenneth Branagh
    Theatre Company.
