Kirk Jameson will direct a cast that is led by Vicki Lee Taylor (currently appearing in the West End as Maggie in A Chorus Line) as Daisy Gamble and Nadeem Crowe as her psychiatrist Dr. Mark Bruckner.
Also in the cast are Rachel Spurrell, Dan O’Brien, Ross McNeill, Emma Harrold, Laura Robson and Rebecca Lawrence.
The show will be choreographed by Sam Spencer-Lane, with musical direction by Inga Davis-Rutter.
In the show, Daisy Gamble considers herself to be a fairly unremarkable person, when in reality she is anything but. In a bid to quit smoking she seeks help from psychiatrist Dr. Mark Bruckner, who, using hypnotherapy, helps her kick the habit. Throughout their sessions together, however, something in Daisy is unlocked making it clear just how special she is.
Taylor's other stage credits include Listen to the Wind (King’s Head, plus cast album recorded at Abbey Road Studios), Mamma Mia! (West End and international tour), Alice in Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (U.K. tour), Cutie in Guys and Dolls (U.K. tour), and Rebecca and Dance Captain in The Witches of Eastwick (U.K. tour). Crowe's previous credits include Tank in the London premiere of Zanna, Don't! at the Upstairs at the Gatehouse. He is also a medical doctor with a particular interest in geriatric medicine and aims to continue to combine his passions for both theatre and medicine.
As a director, Jameson has previously directed Dames at Sea and Once upon a Matress (both at the Union). As an actor, he has appeared in national tours of The Phantom of the Opera and The Sound of Music, and appeared in I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change at the Union.
