Cast announced for James Graham’s play Quiz in the West End
Casting has been announced for James Graham’s latest play to be staged in the West End, Quiz.
The play, which initially ran in Chichester last year, explores Britain’s love affair with the game show format, and focusses on Charles Ingram’s cheating scandal on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? in 2001.
Gavin Spokes and Keir Charles reprise their roles as Ingram and Chris Tarrant respectively from the Chichester production, as do Greg Haiste, Mark Meadows, Henry Pettigrew, Stephanie Street, Jay Villiers, Lizzie Winkler and Sarah Woodward. They will be joined by Sharon Ballard.
Quiz will run at the Noel Coward Theatre from 31st March to 16th June, with an official opening on 10th April.
Gavin Spokes’ previous theatre credits include Against (Almeida), Carousel (ENO) and Guys and Dolls (Phoenix Theatre). Keir Charles has previously appeared in The Lottery of Love (Orange Tree Theatre), A Christmas Carol (Noël Coward Theatre), and numerous productions for the RSC.
The production marks Graham’s third play to be staged in the West End in 12 months, following productions of Ink, starring Bertie Carvel and Richard Coyle, and Labour of Love, which featured Martin Freeman and Tamsin Greig.
Producers have also announced a limited number of on-stage seats throughout the run.
Quiz is at the Noel Coward Theatre from 31st March to 16th June.
