Hampstead Theatre has today announced full casting for the world premiere of Beth Steel’s new economic thriller Labyrinth.
Exploring the fallout from one of the most catastrophic economic crises of modern history, Labyrinth transports audiences to 1978 New York to tell the story of John Anderson, a rising star on Wall Street who sells loans to developing Latin America countries to finance his dreams of boundless wealth.
But when cracks begin to show in the avaricious strategy, John and his colleagues’ ruthless determination to pursue their targets threatens to leave them financially, and morally, bankrupt.
The full cast is led by Sean Delaney as John, who returns to Hampstead Theatre having made his professional stage debut in Rabbit Hole at the venue earlier this year, and Tom Weston-Jones, whose recent credits include The Merchant Of Venice at the Almeida Theatre and superhero film Captain America, who plays Charlie.
The cast is completed by Eric Kofi Abrefa, Joseph Balderrama, Philip Bird, Martin McDougall, Alexia Traverse-Healy, Matt Whitchurch, Abubakar Salim, Elena Saurel, Christopher Sawalha and Ryan Ellsworth.
Playing at the venue for a limited run from 1 September to 8 October, Labyrinth promises a compelling thriller with a sharp, all-too-relevant financial edge. Tickets can be purchased through the theatre’s website.
