Cast update for The Acid Test at Royal Court Theatre

Cast update for The Acid Test, by Anya Reiss, which opens at the Royal Court Upstairs Theatre 23 May 2011, following previews from 13 May - booking to 11 June 2011.

The cast includes Denis Lawson (Jim), Phoebe Fox (Ruth), Vanessa Kirby (Dana), Lydia Wilson (Jessica)

Directed by Simon Godwin, designed by Paul Wills, lighting by Malcolm Rippeth, sound by Nick Manning.

An unruly new comedy asking if age equals maturity. Dana, Ruth and Jess down shots to console the heart-broken, to comfort the anxious and just pass the time. Kicked out from the family home Jess’s dad, Jim, invades the party with just as much recklessness as the girls. As the night passes and vodka bottles are emptied, Friday night in becomes high drama.

Looking for the best seats...
