The Albatross 3rd & Main cast announced

Published 5 December 2016

Gritty black comedy The Albatross 3rd & Main opens the new PARK90 season. Hamish Clark, Charlie Allen and Andrew St Clair-James star in this American tale of three men, a mountain of debt, and a box of priceless roadkill. Written and directed by Simon David Eden, The Albatross 3rd & Main explores the dark side of the ‘Eagle Feather Law’: US federal legislation which states that only enrolled members of federally approved tribes can legally possess eagle feathers. The law denies many of the indigenous population their sovereignty and makes practicing their ancient rituals and tribal ceremonies illegal.

Gene Lacy is down on his luck. He’s ducking creditors, huge gambling debts, and an ex-wife with very expensive tastes. So when Spider walks into his store with a golden lottery ticket in the shape of a rare and valuable dead bird, doing a black market deal with the nearby Native American reservation seems like a no-brainer. As it’s a felony offence to even be in possession of the bird, the road to turning the windfall into a win for all is fraught with danger at every turn for this backwater band of desperados.

The Albatross 3rd & Main will include the first ever relaxed performance in PARK90, beginning a season of access performances available for every production. A relaxed performance is designed to welcome people who may benefit from a more relaxed environment. This will entail adjustments to lighting and sound levels, a relaxed attitude towards noise and moving around the auditorium, and a break area for anyone wishing to take time out from the production.

Hamish Clark will play the role of Gene Lacy. Hamish is best-known for his leading role as ‘Duncan’ in 7 series of Monarch Of The Glen (BBC 1) and ‘Roger’ in 3 series of My Wonderful Life (Granada/ITV). His theatre credits include: Almost, Maine (Park Theatre); Donkeys Years (Comedy Theatre); 24 Hour Plays (The Old Vic); Haunted (The Arts Theatre); The Agent (The Old Red Lion), The Birds (Gate Theatre) and The Demon Headmaster (NT Studio).

Charlie Allen joins the cast as Spider. Charlie trained at the Rose Bruford School of Speech and Drama. He won Best Male Lead Performer, Brighton Festival 2012 and was recipient of the Outstanding Theatre Award Brighton Fringe 2013. Theatre includes: From Dusk Till Dawn (Kings Head) Atrophy (Etcetera Theatre) Faster Higher Stronger Straighter (Scealta Mora) The Taming of the Shrew (Festival Shakespeare Company)  Bug (Brighton Fringe) No Particular Place To Go (Chronicle Theatre)  Film includes: Brothers of War; Brighton Rock

Andrew St Clair-James will play the role of Lullaby. In addition to his acting career, Andrew is also Artistic Director of the Moors Theatre, London. His theatre credits include The Truth, Heramiss Island, Enlightened and  An Ex-Engagement (Moors Theatre), Clouds of Grey (Park Theatre), Sherlock Holmes in Trouble (Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester), Twelfth Night (Voice Theatre) and Midsummer Night’s Dream (Chicken Shed Theatre & Everyman Voice Theatre Tour). His film credits include: S.N.U.B, The Honeymooners and My Feral Heart.

The Albatross 3rd & Main runs at the Park from 10 January – 4 February, with press night on 12 January. Book your tickets today!

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 be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
