The full casting for Mike Bartlett’s play Albion at the Almeida Theatre has been announced. 

Joining the previously announced Victoria Hamilton will be Nigel Betts, Edyta Budnik, Christopher Fairbank, Charlotte Hope, Margot Leicester, Vinette Robinson, Nicholas Rowe, Helen Schlesinger and Luke Thallon.

Albion is set in rural England and, directed by Almeida AD Rupert Goold, follows the pair’s collaboration on King Charles III, which opened at the theatre in 2014. Bartlett’s TV drama Doctor Foster started its second series on BBC One last night. 

In the ruins of a garden in rural England, in a house which was once a home, one woman searches for seeds of hope.

The production will be designed by Miriam Buether, with lighting design by Neil Austin, sound design by Greg Clarke and casting by Amy Ball.

Albion runs from 10th October to 24th November, with an official opening on 17th October. 

Victoria Hamilton’s recent television appearances include playing the Queen Mother in Netflix series The Crown. 

The new season at the Almeida also includes a stage adaptation of The Twilight Zone, and the Tennessee Williams play Summer and Smoke
