Nuclear War at the Royal Court

Cast announced for Royal Court’s Nuclear War

Published 27 March 2017

Full casting has been announced for the Royal Court production of Nuclear War, Simon Stephens’ mysterious new play about a woman, a city, desire and time.

Maureen Beattie, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Gerrome Miller, Beatrice Scirocchi and Andrew Sheridan have been cast in Simon Stephens’ Nuclear War directed by Imogen Knight. It runs in the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs 19 April 2017 – 6 May 2017 with Press Night on Friday 21 April.

With design by Royal Court Associate Designer Chloe Lamford, lighting by Lee Curran, sound by Peter Rice and composition by Elizabeth Bernholz.

Nuclear War is a play created with a highly visual and physical language. Simon Stephens states on the play text that; ‘All of these words may be spoken by the performers but none of them need to be.’

Stephens has written this play with the intention that the words be interpreted and re-imagined through a highly theatrical and choreographic lens. Nuclear War will be an alternative theatrical experience about a woman, a city, desire and time.
