Casting has been announced for the premiere of Stephanie Jacob’s new play Again, which opens at Trafalgar Studios next month. Again is about a close-knit family who come together after a long period of estrangement, and looks at how the family come together, as there is added pressure that this meeting has to go right. Jacob’s has previously written The Quick (Tristan Bates Theatre) and A Night Visitor (BBC Radio 4). Her acting credits include Burnt by the Sun, Her Naked Skin and The Philistines at the National Theatre.
A once close-knit family of four reunite after a long period of estrangement. This time, this time, it must go right.
Words never said. Words said that shouldn't be. Contradicting memories. Family history builds like sedimentary rock, layer upon layer.
In this warm and touchingly comic new drama, Stephanie Jacob peels away the facades and literally re-sets the clock. As the four characters tussle for what they think they want, we are allowed to peer into the recesses of that unknowable unit which so shapes each of our lives: the family.
Moving, funny, infinitely relatable, Again is a brand new play with an ingenious theatrical twist.
