Full casting has been announced for Anatomy Of A Suicide, Alice Birch’s new familial drama at the Royal Court, directed by Katie Mitchell.

(The Royale), Paul Hilton (Peter Pan), Peter Hobday (Othello), Adelle Leonce (Torn), Sarah Malin (The Tempest), Jodie McNee (The Night Watch), Hattie Morahan (A Doll’s House), Kate O’Flynn (The Glass Menagerie) and Dickon Tyrrell (Twelfth Night) have been cast, with the show set to run in the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs 3 June 2017 – 8 July 2017, with Press Night on Thursday 8 June.
“My mother always said to Live Big. Live as much as I could.” The show follows three generations of women – but for each, the chaos of what has come before brings with it a painful legacy.
“I have Stayed. I have Stayed – I have Stayed for as long as I possibly can.”
Writer Alice has recently penned Ophelias Zimmer (& Schaubühne, Berlin), and Revolt, She Said, Revolt Again, while director Katie has been an Associate Director at the RSC, National Theatre and The Royal Court Theatre, being awarded an OBE in 2009 for services to Drama.
