Natalie Casey will star in Chris Thompson’s new play Albion when it receives its world premiere at the Bush Theatre in September.
Playing from 12 September to 25 October, Albion is set in an East End boozer that acts as the official home of the English Protection Army and charts the turbulent rise of the new far right in modern day Britain.
Casey, best known for her roles in Hollyoaks and Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps, returns to the London stage following recent performances in IN THE NEXT ROOM Or The Vibrator Play at the St James Theatre and Abigail’s Party in the West End. The actress will take on the role of Christine, a woman who believes the key to success is in the company you keep and the language you speak.
Casey is joined in the cast by Delroy Atkinson, whose recent credits include I Can’t Sing! at the London Palladium and National Theatre productions of The Amen Corner and Jerry Springer The Opera, and Paul Ham, who was seen in Titus Andronicus at Shakespeare’s Globe this summer.
Completing the cast are Steve John Shephard (Piaf, Donmar Warehouse), Dharmesh Patel (Too Close To Home, Lyric Hammersmith), Nicola Harrison (Decade, Theatre503) and Tony Clay.
Directed by Ria Parry, Albion will open at the Bush Theatre following the current run of Perseverance Drive, which closes on 16 August.
