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.”
