Plays cast: Propeller's Comedy and Dream, Attenborough's Hampstead Godchild
Casting has been announced for the all-male company's new tour, and a new comedy in the Hampstead Downstairs
Casting announced for Propeller's 2013-14 season which, as previously announced, comprises revivals of the all-male Shakespeare company's productions of The Comedy of Errors and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Joseph Chance and Dan Wheeler will play the twin Antipholus brothers in The Comedy of Errors, with Propeller debutants Matthew McPherson and Will Featherstone as their respective long-suffering twin servants, both called Dromio.
The company, a number of whom will appear in both productions, also features: David Acton, Alasdair Craig, Dominic Gerrard, Lewis Hart, Matthew Pearson, Richard Pepper and Arthur Wilson.
Both productions are directed by Propeller's artistic director Edward Hall and designed by Michael Pavelka, with lighting design by Ben Ormerod and sound by David Gregory. The texts are adapted by Edward Hall and Roger Warren.
The Comedy of Errors and A Midsummer Night's Dream will tour from November to locations including Plymouth, Guildford, Bath, High Wycombe, Girona, Sheffield, Coventry, Nottingham, Salford, Canterbury, Cheltenham, Norwich, Newcastle, Marseille, Edinburgh, Craiova and Caracal.
The play centres on a 'carefree' woman whose life is thrown into sharp perspective when her 19 year-old goddaughter moves in.
The production is Attenborough's first freelance project since stepping down as artistic director of the Almeida Theatre.
