Casting announced for return of Translations to the National Theatre

Translations cast

Casting has been announced for the upcoming return of Brian Friel’s play Translations to the National Theatre, following its sell-out run in the Olivier last year.

Dermot Crowley, Ciarán Hinds, Seamus O’Hara, Judith Roddy, and Rufus Wright will all return to Ian Rickson’s production, which runs in the Olivier once again from 15th October.

Fra Fee will join the production, alongside fellow newcomers Jack Bardoe, Liádan Dunlea, Amy Molloy and Julian Moore-Cook.

Friel’s classic play sees Owen return to his rural hometown in Dublin, along with two British army officers to create a map of this previously unchartered area, and replace the Gaelic names with English ones.

Rickson’s production has designs by Rae Smith, lighting by Neil Austin, music by Stephen Warbeck, sound by Ian Dickinson and movement by Anna Morrissey.

Translations is at the National Theatre from 15th October.
