Casting has been announced for the UK premiere of Claudio Tolcachir's The Omission of the Family Coleman at the Ustinov Studio in Bath.

Following three generations of a dysfunctional family under one roof, the absurdist comedy is translated from its native Argentinian and is relocated to Ireland by writer Stella Feehily (Bang Bang Bang). Tolcachir's piece has been performed around the world and garnered a number of international awards including the Ace Award for Best Argentinian Play and the Best
Original Play Award at the Fiesta Nacional del Teatro. In 2012 he was recognised as an Outstanding Personality of Culture by the Legislature of Buenos Aires.

The show is directed by Laurence Boswell, and will star Evanna Lynch (Disco Pigs, Harry Potter) alongside Rowan Polonski (Kingsman). Also appearing are Patrick Moy, Laoisha O'Callaghan, Natalie Radmall-Quirke, Robert Mountford, Anne Kent and David Crowley.

The production runs from 28 March to 27 April, with tickets on sale now.
