Casting is by Matthew Dewsbury CDG and Martin Poile.
The production also features design by Aldo Vázquez, lighting by Amy Mae, music by Jack Drewry, sound by Alexandra Faye Braithwaite, and video by Daniel Denton.
Falkland Sound runs at the Swan Theatre until 16 September 2023, with a press night set for 15 August.
