Donmar's Louie Tours to Lowry
Date: 17 March 2010
Continuing their relationship with the Donmar, the Lowry stages the Covent Garden hit Serenading Louie in April. In Landford Wilson’s portrait of two suburban American couples, friends since college, Carl and Alex, are struggling to deal with the harsh realities of adulthood as they enter their thirties. Disillusioned by work and fighting to keep their marriages alive, they’re desperately trying to make sense of it all.
Pulitzer Prize winner Lanford Wilson’s other plays include Home Free!, Balm in Gilead, The Rimers of Eldritch, Lemon Sky, The Hot L Baltimore, Fifth of July, Angels Fall, Burn This, Redwood Curtain, Sympathetic Magic, Book of Days, Rain Dance and Talley’s Folly.
The cast includes Geraldine Somerville (Harry Potter, Survivors, Cracker), [Jason O’Mara] (Life on Mars US version), Charlotte Emmerson (Casualty 1909, Holby City, Peak Practice) and Jason Butler Harner (The Good Wife, Hope & Faith) who makes his UK theatrical debut.
Simon Curtis directs the new production, which is designed by Peter McKintosh. After Salford, the Donmar production will tour to Leicester and Truro.
Serenading Louie runs at the Lowry from 30th March - 3rd April.
