Cast announced for Gary Owen's Killology at the Royal Court Theatre
Cast announced for new Gary Owen play.
Seán Gleeson, Richard Mylan and Sion Daniel Young will star in the production which reunites the writer/director team of Iphigenia in Splott, writer Gary Owen and director Rachel O'Riordan.
"Tackling the experiences faced by young men in contemporary society, Killology is about a controversial new gaming experience that is inspiring a generation. In Killology, players are rewarded for torturing victims, scoring points for "creativity"."
The production has its premiere at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff from 24 March – 8 April with an official opening on Tuesday 28 March. It runs at the Royal Court Theatre from 25 May - 24 June with press night on Tuesday 30 May 2017.
Director Rachel O’Riordan said: “I am delighted to be partnering with the powerhouse Royal Court theatre on Killology, and to be part of this extraordinary season of new work. Getting brilliant actors and a brilliant writer together is a powerful mix; and this team features some of our most exciting talent."
Playwright Gary Owen added “Since taking over at the Royal Court Vicky has worked hard to bring new voices to its stages. So it's entirely unsurprising that the Royal Court's first co-production with a Welsh theatre should happen under her reign. We've got a fantastic gang of actors, and I can't wait to see what Rachel's going to do with them.”
Tickets for Killology are now on sale.
