Casting has been announced for the upcoming production of Cordelia Lynn's new play One For Sorrow at the Royal Court.

The piece, which is directed by James Macdonald, will star Kitty Archer, Pearl Chanda, Neil Dudgeon, Irfan Shamji and Sarah Woodward.

One For Sorrow is set in the aftermath of an attack on London where 20 year-old Imogen joins a campaign offering refuge to victims. When John turns up at her family's front door, he isn't what they were expecting.

Lynn won the 2017 Pinter Commission and made her debut at the Royal Court in 2015 with Lela & Co.

The piece runs in a season alongside a new Mark Ravenhill play The Cane which runs in December and Ellie Kendrick's play Hole directed by RashDash in November and a new season of work in pop up space The Site.
