The cast of No Quarter, Polly Stenham's third play to premiere at the Royal Court, has been announced.

Opening in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs on 16 January 2013 (previews from 11 January), it's directed by Stenham's long-time collaborator Jeremy Herrin and designed by Tom Scutt, with lighting by Philip Gladwell, sound by Fergus O'Hare and music by Paul Englishby.

The cast comprises: Maureen Beattie (The Enquirer), Zoe Boyle (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, West Yorkshire Playhouse), Alexa Davies, Taron Egerton (The Last of the Haussmans), Joshua James (Love and Information), Patrick Kennedy (The Glass Menagerie, Shared Experience), Jenny Rainsford (The Importance of Being Earnest, Rose Kingston) and Tom Sturridge (Wastwater, Punk Rock).

"You were brought up on mythology. That's why you're all stuck, all angry, a prince in the wrong story. A prince with a black eye."

Fleeing a world he has rejected, Robin finds solace in his music and the sanctuary of his remote family home. But as his kingdom begins to crumble around him, how far will he go to save it and at what cost?

The play, billed as "an anarchic twist on the drawing room drama", follows Stenham's award-winning That Face and Tusk Tusk (which were both directed by Herrin).
