Gerard McCarthy & Oliver Wilson join Robert Bathurst to complete the cast in Blue/Orange

Gerard McCarthy (Bruce) and Oliver Wilson (Christopher) join the previously announced, Robert Bathurst (Robert), to complete the cast of Blue/Orange.  The second show in Theatre Royal Brighton Productions inaugural season, directed by Christopher Luscombe, Joe Penhall’s Blue/Orange will tour nationally from 13 September 2012, before transferring to the West End.

Joe Penhall wrote the original play twelve years ago, when it won an Olivier Award, a Critic's Circle Award and the Evening Standard Award for Best Play, but it remains sharply relevant to modern day society.
 
A young patient is convinced that a notorious military dictator is his father. Bruce, a junior psychiatric doctor wants to do further tests and plan longer care. Robert, a senior consultant, wants to thrust him back into the community. A riveting, compelling and witty battle of freedom and ambition unfolds.
 
Gerard McCarthy’s stage credits include The Merry Wives of Windsor at The Globe, The Miser at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast and Call Me Lee at the New End Theatre.  On screen, Gerard will soon be seen in Titanic: Blood & Steel alongside Sir Derek Jacobi, Chris Noth, Joely Richardson and Neve Campbell.  Gerard has also recently completed filming on BBC thriller, The Fall, with Gillian Anderson and Vikings with Gabriel Byrne.  Previous TV credits include the long running role of Kris Fisher in Hollyoaks and Rory Thompson in Belonging to Laura.
 
Oliver Wilson’s stage credits include Emperor and Galilean and All’s Well That Ends Well at the National Theatre, Romeo and Juliet at the Pilot Theatre, York/National Tour, To Kill A Mockingbird at Theatr Clywd/National Tour and Much Ado About Nothing for Derby Live. Oliver’s screen work includes Misfits, Hollyoaks, Groove Town and Karmic Compensation.
