Final Cast of Buried Child includes Game of Thrones star Charlotte Hope
From "Game of Thrones" to the West End's production of Buried Child...
Final casting has now been revealed for the upcoming West End production of Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Buried Child at Trafalgar Studios, which runs from 14 November 2016 to 18 February 2017 with an official opening on 1 December 2016.
Joining previously announced Ed Harris, Amy Madigan and Jeremy Irvine will be Charlotte Hope, perhaps best known for her role as Myranda in the multi-award-winning TV series Game of Thrones, along with Jack Fortune, Barnaby Kay and Gary Shelford.
This marks the West End debut for Ms. Hope, whose film credits include "Les Misérables," "Allied," "A United Kingdom," "The Theory of Everything," "Testament Of Youth," "The Invisible Woman," and "Three Christs of Ypsilanti."
Buried Child follows Dodge (Harris) and Halie (Madigan) who are barely hanging on to their farmland and their sanity while looking after their two wayward grown sons. When their grandson Vince arrives with his girlfriend, no one seems to recognize him, and confusion abounds. As Vince tries to make sense of the chaos, the rest of the family dances around a deep, dark secret. This wildly poetic and cuttingly funny take on the American family drama gleefully pulls apart the threadbare deluded visions of our families and our homes.
Produced by The New Group the production is directed by Scott Elliott and originally premiered off-Broadway at The Pershing Square Signature Center in March 2016 where it was nominated for two Lucille Lortel Awards.
Buried Child originally premiered in San Francisco in 1978, winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1979, before transferring to Broadway in 1996.
Tickets for Buried Child at the Trafalgar Studios are on sale now.
