Gwyneth Keyworth joins cast of Raising Martha

Published 12 December 2016

Gwyneth Keyworth has joined the cast of Raising Martha after Morgona Robinson had to withdraw from the production. Raising Martha is a brand new dark comedy by award-winning writer David Spicer and directed by Michael Fentiman and will have its world premiere at the Park Theatre. The production opens for previews on 12 January and will run until 11 February 2017.

Raising Martha is an absurdly funny, dark comedy starring the finest comedy ensemble live on stage, tackling terrorism, animal rights and even  six-foot frogs!

Gwyneth, who will play Caro, most recently starred as Alison in E4’s Wasted, with other notable screen appearances in Channel 4’s Powder Monkeys, HBO’s Game of Thrones, ITV’s Dr Thorne and E4’s Misfits. She was last seen on stage in the Globe’s revival of The Heresy of Love.

Raising Martha is produced by Michael James Cox and Tom O’Connell with set and costume design by Rebecca Brower.

Michael James Cox said, “I’m very excited and proud to be producing this hilarious new comedy along with Tom O’Connell Productions. This project has been very close to my heart for a long time and I’m thrilled to be working with such a wonderful theatre.”

Tom O’Connell said, “After our sell-out success with The Boys in the Band, we are thrilled to be working on a brand new piece of theatre with a stellar comedy cast who I know will be electric to watch in the intimate Park Theatre. We send on our best wishes to Morgana, who was a pleasure to work with, and are thrilled that the very talented and hilarious Gwyneth Keyworth is joining the family.”

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
