Full casting has been announced for the European premiere of Boys Will Be Boys, which opens at Bush Hall in June.

The Headlong and Bush Theatre co-production will feature an all-female cast including Kirsty Bushell (Hedda Gabler, Salisbury Playhouse) as Astrid, Helen Schlesinger (Frozen, Park Theatre) as Arthur, Ellora Torchia (Macbeth, Out of Joint) as Priya, Emily Barber (Cymbeline, The Globe) as Harrison and Chipo Chung (The Haunting of Hill House, Liverpool Playhouse) as Isabelle. Three of the women will also play multiple male roles.

Melissa Bubnic's satirical play explores what it means to be a woman in a man's world and will feature live cabaret music.

The production will be directed by Amy Hodge with design by Jo Scotcher, lighting by Lee Curran and sound by Emma Laxton.

The show forms part of Bush Breaks Out, the Bush's season of work taking place in new and unexpected spaces in west London as they redevelop the Bush Theatre.

Boys Will Be Boys will run at Bush Hall from 29 June to 30 July.
