Full Casting Announced for Donmar's Temple
Full casting has now been announced for the Donmar Warehouse's upcoming world premiere of Temple which opens at the central London venue on 27 May 2015, following previews from 21 May, running to 25 July 2015.
Joining the previously announced Simon Russell Beale as the Dean, will be Anna Calder-Marshall, Paul Higgins, Rebecca Humphries, Shereen Martin and Malcolm Sinclair.
Synopsis: "On 15 October 2011, Occupy London makes camp outside St Paul’s Cathedral. On 21 October, a building that remained open through the Blitz, terrorist threats and floods closes its doors. On 28 October, the City of London initiates legal action to begin removing Occupy London from outside the Cathedral. This play is a fictional account of these events, set in the heart of a very British crisis – a crisis of conscience, a crisis of authority and a crisis of faith."
Temple is a new play by Steve Waters and will be directed by Howard Davies, with set design by Tim Hatley, lighting by Mark Henderson and sound by Mike Walker.
