Kyle Soller is to join David Suchet and Laurie Metcalf in Long Day’s Journey Into Night at the Apollo theatre in April next year.
Soller, who is currently appearing in The Faith Machine at the Royal Court, will play Edmund, the son of James and Mary Tyrone (Suchet and Metcalf) in Eugene O’Neill’s semi-autobiographical play about old wounds within family relationships.
American actor and RADA graduate Soller is a rising star on the British theatre scene, having appeared in The Government Inspector and The Glass Menagerie at the Young Vic. He can be seen opposite Hayley Atwell in Alexi Kaye Campbell’s The Faith Machine at the Royal Court until 1 October.
Anthony Page’s production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night opens at the Apollo theatre on 10 April after previews from 2 April, and runs until 18 August.
