Further casting has been announced for Kate Marlais and Alex Young's F**ked in Marrakech which will be performed at new musical event BEAM2018.

Directed by Josh Seymour, the cast will feature Carly Bawden, Paul Chahidi, Ashley Zhangazha and Gay Soper. Completing the cast is Simbi Akande, Noa Bodner, Jay Saighal and Gary Wood.

Looking at how we shape our past, present and future, Marlais and Young's musical follows the women of three generations of a British family who work through resentment and reconciliation while together in Marrakech.

Marlais is the Cameron Mackintosh resident composer for 2018, based at the Lyric Hammersmith. Young is an actress and writer most recently seen in Show Boat in the West End and Follies at the National Theatre.

Organised by Musical Theatre Network and Mercury Musical Developments, BEAM2018 is a two-day event connecting musical theatre projects with industry professionals. This year it will feature 50 ten minute pitches and eight 25-minute extracts from new musicals.

BEAM2018 runs at Theatre Royal Stratford East on 1 and 2 March.
