Flynn takes The Low Road

Published 11 February 2013

Johnny Flynn, Simon Paisley Day and Elizabeth Berrington are among the cast announced for the forthcoming production of Bruce Norris’ The Low Road, which opens at the Royal Court theatre next month.

Written by the playwright behind the Olivier Award-winning Clybourne Park, The Low Road, which plays at the Sloane Square venue from 22 March to 11 May, is a fable of free market economics and cut-throat capitalism that charts a young entrepreneur’s quest for wealth.

Paisley Day, who was last seen at the Royal Court theatre in The Ugly One, has recently been seen on stage in Shakespearean comedies The Taming Of The Shrew at Shakespeare’s Globe and Twelfth Night at the National Theatre, while Flynn, who will take on the role of the entrepreneur at the centre of Norris’ tale, is similarly well acquainted with the Bard’s works, having just taken his final bow in the Shakespeare’s Globe double bill at the Apollo theatre, where he starred opposite his Jerusalem co-star Mark Rylance in Richard III and Twelfth Night. Currently starring in BBC domestic comedy Being Eileen, Berrington’s West End credits include Absent Friends and Abigail’s Party.

The trio will be joined in the production by Earthquakes In London duo Helen Cripps and Bill Paterson, In The Republic Of Happiness star Ellie Kendrick, Fireface’s Ian Gelder, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, who is currently appearing in Royal Court co-production Feast at the Young Vic, star of The Ladykillers Harry Peacock, Red Velvet’s Natasha Gordon, and Raj Ghatak, whose credits at the Royal Court theatre include Free Outgoing and Shades.

Directed by Dominic Cooke, the cast will also include John Ramm, Jared Ashe, Jack Benjamin, Kit Benjamin, Edward Killingback, Frederick Neilson, Leigh Quinn and Will Thompson.

Featuring original live music by Gary Yershon, The Low Road will open in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs following Anders Lustgarten’s If You Don’t Let Us Dream, We Won’t Let You Sleep starring Meera Syal and Lucian Msamati.
