Yasmin Paige and Simon Manyonda will star in the European premiere of Anna Ziegler's Actually, which opens at Trafalgar Studios in August.

Directed by Oscar Toeman (After October, runner-up in this year's JMK Award), the piece sees Ziegler's work return to the London stage for the first time since Photograph 51, which starred Nicole Kidman and ran at the Noël Coward Theatre. Based on two differing accounts of a college hook up, the show explores the questions of consent in the modern day.

Paige was last seen on stage in HOME Manchester's Circle Mirror Transformation, and has screen credits including Submarine, The Double and Pramface. Manyonda has appeared in Alys, Always and The Way of the World and will feature in the upcoming BBC production of His Dark Materials.

The show runs from 6 to 31 August with an official opening night on 12 August. Tickets are on sale now.
