Chichester's Another Country transfers to West End’s Trafalgar Studios

The Chichester Festival Theatre revival of Julian Mitchell's Another Country will transfer to Trafalgar Studios 1. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the production will run from Wednesday 26th March until Saturday 21st June 2014.

The cast features: Will Attenborough (Judd), Rob Callender (Bennett), Cai Brigden (Delahay), Mark Donald (Devenish), Dario Coates (Sanderson), Bill Milner (Wharton), James Parris (Menzies), Julian Wadham (Vaughan Cunningham) and Mark Quartley (Barclay) with further casting to be announced. Design is by Peter McKintosh, with lighting design by Paul Pyant and sound design by Fergus O'Hare.

 
The 1930s: an English Public School. Bennett and Judd are both outsiders; one coming to terms with his homosexuality, the other already a committed Marxist. But the Establishment has traditional ways of dealing with rebels and when a scandal rocks the school, the young men must confront their beliefs and make choices which will have a momentous impact on their lives.
 
When the original production transferred to the West End in 1982 it helped launch the careers of Rupert Everett, Kenneth Branagh, Daniel Day Lewis and Colin Firth. In 1984 it was adapted for the screen, starring Everett and Firth as Bennett and Judd.
 
Julian Mitchell’s plays include After Aida and his screenplays include August, Wilde, Vincent and Theo and Arabesque, as well as the film adaptation of Another Country.
 
Jeremy Herrin previously directed Uncle Vanya and South Downs for Chichester. He is also an Associate Director of the Royal Court Theatre. Another Country ran in the Chichester Minerva in September and October last year.
 
The West End transfer is co-produced by Chichester with Fiery Angel and Theatre Royal Bath Productions, in association with Tom O'Connell for QNQ Ltd.
