Casting announced for David Greig’s Europe at the Donmar Warehouse

Donmar Warehouse - Europe

Full casting has been announced for the first production in Michael Longhurst’s tenure as artistic director at the Donmar Warehouse: David Greig’s Europe.

Directed by Longhurst, the play is set at a train station in a dilapidated Eastern Europe town as a train approached carrying a number of passengers including a dishonest businessman, and two refugees seeking shelter.

This new Donmar production comes 25 years after the play was first performed at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh in 1994. It was most recently revived in Leeds at West Yorkshire Playhouse last summer.

Joining the previously announced Billy Howle, Kevrok Malikyan, Faye Marsay, Stephen Wright and Shane Zaza will be Teo Barklem-Biggs as Horse, Ron Cooke as Fret and Natalia Tena as Katia.

Europe will run at the Donmar Warehouse from 20th June to 10th August, with an official opening night on 27th June.

The production will feature designs by Chloe Lamford, lighting by Tom Visser, sound by Ian Dickinson, compositions by Simon Slater and movement by Imogen Knight.

The Donmar’s current production is the musical Sweet Charity, starring Anne-Marie Duff, which is artistic director Josie Rourke’s final show at the theatre.

Longhurst announced his first season at the theatre last month, and it features work by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Alice Birch, Caryl Churchill and Mike Lew. Click here to read more about the season in full.
