The cast for the world premiere production of The Invisible by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, which opens at the Bush Theatre in July, has been announced

It includes the Olivier Award-winning actor Niall Buggy (Aristocrats, NT, Dead Funny, Guys and Dolls, Donmar Warehouse) and the Olivier Award-nominated Alexandra Gilbreath (The Merry Wives of Windsor, RSC).

Buggy and Gilbreath star alongside Nicholas Bailey (Breakfast with Mugabe, EastEnders), Scott Karim (Dara and Great Britain, NT) and Sirine Saba (HMS Pinafore, Open Air Theatre, Nation, NT)

The Invisible is a new play about the recent changes to the provision of legal aid. Based on interviews with real people at all levels of the British justice system, this play aims to tell the stories of those ordinary people affected by the cuts and to examine how they are "driving ever deeper cracks into the fabric of our society".

The production, directed by Michael Oakley, previews at the Bush Theatre from 3 July 2015. For more information and to book tickets click here
