Lawrence After Arabia at the Hampstead


Casting has been announced for the premiere of Howard Brenton's new play Lawrence After Arabia which runs at the Hampstead Theatre in north London from 28 April to 4 June 2016, with an official opening on 5 May 2016.

"August, 1922. The most famous man in England has vanished without a trace: T.E. Lawrence has completely disappeared. But in the idyllic calm of the village of Ayot St Lawrence, on the top floor of the home of Mr and Mrs Bernard Shaw, the ‘uncrowned King of Arabia’ is hiding - with slabs of homemade carrot cake for comfort..."

Directed by John Dove, the cast includes Sam Alexander, William Chubb, Geraldine James, Khalid Laith, Jack Laskey, Rosalind March, and Jeff Rawle.

Brenton’s new play was commissioned to mark the centenary of the start of the Arab revolt and follows T.E Lawrence as he is trapped in his love/hate relationship with the limelight, tormented by ghosts and haunted by broken promises.
