Casting update for Philistines at the Lyttelton

Cast Update for Philistines, which opens in rep at the Lyttelton, NT, 30 May 2007, following previews from 23 May - booking to 20 June 2007.

Joining previously mentioned Rory Kinnear (Pyotr) & Ruth Wilson (Tanya), is Conleth Hill (Teterev), Phil Davis (Vassilly), Mark Bonnar (Nil), Duncan Bell (Perchikin), Jonathan Bryan (Shyshkin), Marcus Cunningham (Doctor ), Susannah Fielding (Polya), Rendah Heywood (Tsvetaeva), Stephanie Jacob (Akulina), Maggie McCarthy (Stepanida), and Justine Mitchell (Elena).

Written by Maxim Gorky, in a new version by Andrew Upton, it is directed by Howard Davies , designed by Bunny Christie, lighting by Neil Austin, with sound by Christopher Shutt.

A restless bunch of young radicals hang out, have sex, dance, drink, moan and philosophise at the home of a prosperous decorator. While Pyotr, a sometime student of law, falls for the lovely, loose-living lodger, his sister Tanya carps on about the tedium of life, lusts after Nil – who’s blind to her charms but in pursuit of the servant – and botches her own suicide.
