News   Alison Steadman to Star in New Production of Michael Frayn's Here at Rose Theatre, Kingston
 
Alison Steadman will star in Michael Frayn's 1993 play Here, being revived at the Rose Theatre, Kingston, where it begins performances April 19 prior to an official opening April 27, for a run through May 12.

Here originally premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in a production that starred Iain Glen, Teresa Banham and Brenda Bruce.

According to press materials, "Here is where everything happens. Here and now – in the space around us that we can see and touch. For Phil and Cath, in this one small studio flat, as they begin to construct their life together. For them the whole past history of the universe has led up to this moment, and its whole future history will be determined by what they decide together. Here. Now. But how to decide anything, when the other person keeps disagreeing? And when the woman downstairs keeps dumping the left-over remains of her own life on you...?"

Steadman was last seen on the West End stage in Blithe Spirit (Apollo Theatre). She created the role of Beverly in the original production of Mike Leigh's Abigail's Party (and starred in the subsequent television version), and the role of the mother in Jim Cartwright's The Rise and Fall of Little Voice (at the National Theatre and subsequently in the West End, opposite Jane Horrocks). She has starred on film in Mike Leigh's "Life is Sweet" and "Topsy Turvy" and also appeared in "Shirley Valentine." TV credits include "Fat Friends," "The Singing Detective," "Pride and Prejudice" and "Gavin and Stacey."

Here is directed by Lisa Spirling, with set and costume design by Polly Sullivan. Further casting is to be announced.
