Hound and Myles debut in Utopia

First Published 10 May 2012, Last Updated 10 May 2012

Comedian Rufus Hound and Spooks star Sophia Myles are to appear in the Soho theatre’s play cycle Utopia, making their theatre debuts at the new writing venue.

They are joined by Tobi Bakare, Laura Elphinstone, Pamela Miles and David Whitaker in the collaboration between Soho and Newcastle’s Live theatre that runs in London from 20 June.

Moustachioed comedian Hound is best known for his work on TV panel shows including Argumental, Celebrity Juice, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

Though Myles has never appeared on stage, she has a wealth of acting experience, having appeared in TV series including Doctor Who and Extras, and films such as Mansfield Park, Underworld, Thunderbirds and Hallam Foe.

The pair are surrounded with a wealth of London theatre experience. Bakare’s credits include Greenland and the Olivier Award-winning Gone Too Far, Elphinstone starred in Top Girls and Women Of Troy, Miles was in Darker Shores and Pygmalion, while Whitaker, one of the founders of Live theatre, Newcastle, appeared in The Pitmen Painters.

Utopia, which features writing by Anthony Neilson, Dylan Moran and Simon Stephens, among others, is a project choosing not to focus on the depressing events of the now, instead setting off on a quest for paradise.

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.
