Buried Child announces full cast

Published 30 September 2016

Full casting has been announced for the West End transfer of Buried Child, with Charlotte Hope set to join the previously announced multi award-winning Ed Harris, Amy Madigan and Jeremy Irvine in the critically acclaimed production.

Charlotte, who will be making her West End debut in the Trafalgar Studios transfer as Shelly, is perhaps best known for her recurring role as Myranda in HBO series Game Of Thrones, and has also recently starred in high-profile films including The Theory Of Everything, and opposite Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard in the upcoming World War II action-romance movie Allied.

Completing the cast are Jack Fortune as Father Dewis, Barnaby Kay as Tilden and Gary Shelford as Bradley.

Buried Child transports audiences to a rural America reeling from a recession, a downturn which hits the agricultural industry particularly hard. Dodge (Ed) and Halie (Amy) cling on to their farmland – and their sanity – while looking after their two wayward grown sons. But the arrival of grandson Vince (Jeremy) and his girlfriend Shelly sends the family into chaos, desperately trying to avoid confronting a deep, dark secret.

Wildly poetic and darkly comic, the American family drama promises to pull apart the threadbare delusions of family life in a climate which draws strong parallels with the political atmosphere of 2016.

This revival of Sam Shephard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama played off-Broadway earlier this year to critical acclaim, and transfers to Trafalgar Studios 1 for a strictly limited season from 14 November until 18 February 2017.
