Full casting for the Donmar's production of Elegy has been announced with Harlequinade and Harry Potter star Zoe Wanamaker starring in the three-hander.

Wanamaker, who takes the role of Lorna, will also be joined by Barbara Flynn (Copenhagen and Hamlet, The Revenger's Tragedy) as Carrie and Nina Sosanya (The Young Chekov Season, The Vote) as Miriam.

The world premiere of Nick Payne's play will be directed by Josie Rourke and appears to continue the scientific themes of Payne's smash-hit Constellations being set in a very-near future in which advances in medical science mean that it's now possible to augment and extend life.

Elegy will run at the Donmar Warehouse from 27 April to 18 June.
