The full cast for the UK premiere of The Green Fairy at the Union Theatre has been announced, opening at the off-West End venue next month.
Written by Jack Sain and Stephen Libby, The Green Fairy follows Jo and Wendy, a mother and daughter who explore their family relationships, especially when Jo reflects on her formative years in 1990s London.
Julie Atherton will play Jo, the mother. Atherton’s previous West End theatre credits include The Grinning Man at Trafalgar Studios, Avenue Q at the Noel Coward Theatre and The Last Five Years at the Duchess Theatre.
The cast is completed by Emma Kinney as Wendy, Georgina Hellier as The Green Fairy, Emma Whittaker as Young Jo, Harry F Brown as Toby and David Perkins as Daniel.
The Green Fairy was first workshopped at the King’s Head Theatre, starring Declan Bennett and Lucie Jones.
The Green Fairy is at the Union Theatre from 30th October to 23rd November.
