Cast announced for Tricycle’s Multitudes

Published 14 January 2015

Full casting has been announced for the Tricycle Theatre’s forthcoming production of Multitudes, which will see Navin Chowdhry, Clare Calbraith and Jacqueline King take to the stage in the world premiere of John Hollingworth’s new play.

The drama about one family and their internal conflict of faith, belonging and who gets to call themselves British will play at the Kilburn venue from 19 February to 21 March.

Former Teachers star Chowdhry, whose London stage credits include Shades and Behind The Image at the Royal Court, will take on the role of liberal British Muslim Kash in the production.

He is joined by Downton Abbey and The Shadow Line’s Calbraith as his girlfriend and recent convert to Islam, Natalie. Calbraith was last seen on the London stage opposite Lily Cole in 2014’s The Last Days Of Troy at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Playing Natalie’s mother Lyn, King returns to the capital’s stage following appearances in Beyond The Horizon and Spring Storm at the National Theatre.

The trio of actors are joined in Hollingworth’s Bradford-set drama by Salma Hoque (Drawing The Line, Hampstead Theatre), Asif Khan (Snookered, Bush Theatre) and Maya Sondhi (There, Royal Court).

Directed by Indhu Rubasingham, Multitudes is set on the eve of a Conservative Party Conference as the multicultural West Yorkshire city awaits a visit from the Prime Minister. Kash prepares to address the Prime Minister about the state of the nation, Natalie cooks for anti-war protesters at the town hall, Lyn moans to anyone who’ll listen about the decline of her cherished England and it’s all too much for Kash’s daughter Khadira (Hoque), who begins to plan a radical intervention.

The production will open at the Tricycle Theatre following the Secret Theatre Company’s A Series Of Increasingly Impossible Acts, one-woman comedy Happy Birthday Without You, the return of Lover’s Rock Monologues and Nina Conti – In Your Face.
