Full casting has been announced for the world première of Stroke of Luck by Larry Belling at the Park Theatre.

As previously reported, the final production of the Finsbury Park venue's second season will star Tim Pigott-Smith as a wealthy invalid who wishes to marry a young nurse.

Joining Pigott-Smith (Lester Riley) are Morgan Deare (Father Riordan/Dr Gunther), Jon Glover (Barry Gillis/Ettore Santangelo), Andrew Langtree (Monroe Riley), Kirstie Malpass (Cory Riley), Fergal McElherron (Ike Riley), Pamela Miles (Helen Riley) and Julia Sandiford (Nurse Lily Hashimoto).

Larry Belling’s debut play is a dark comedy that explores the themes of greed and guilt, how to reunite families that have been driven apart, and how debilitating physical ailments do not necessarily mean diminished mental faculties.

Stroke Of Luck, Park Theatre, 29th January – 2nd March 2014.
