Royal Court Theatre announces cast for two productions
The Royal Court Theatre has announced cast for two of its productions.
If You Don’t Let Us Dream, We Won't Let You Dream, opens in Theatre Downstairs, 20 Feb 2013, folowing previews from 15 Feb - running to 9 March 2013.

As the financial world issues its shock treatment, what happens when the City’s agenda is taken to its ultimate conclusion? New play explodes the ethos of austerity and offers an alternative. Meera Syal credits include Much Ado About Nothing at the RSC, Killing of Sister George at the Arts Theatre, Shirley Valentine at the Menier Chocolate Factory & Trafalgar Studios. On screen, she is perhaps best known for The Kumars at Number 42 and Goodness Gracious Me.

Directed Caroline Steinbeis, starring Owen Teale (Jan), Max Bennett (Piotr), Sinead Matthews (Marysia). From a forested Polish village to the blinding lights of London, A Time to Reap looks at one woman’s story against the mountain landscape of an evolving nation and one of Poland’s hottest political topics – abortion and the Catholic Church. Owen Teale credits at the Royal Court include The Country. Elsewhere his most recent theatre credits include Creditors at the Donmar Warehouse. On screen, his credits include Stella on Sky1, BBC’s Line of Duty, Game of Thrones (HBO) and Kidnap and Ransom (ITV).
