Zawe Ashton, Imogen Doel, Brian Doherty, Christine Entwisle, Barnaby Power and Oliver Rix will work with Neilson in the rehearsal room to create the play, which is described in press materials as "a new play about stories." Neilson's previous work at the Royal Court includes Get Santa!, Relocated, The Wonderful World of Dissocia, Heredity, The Lying Kind and The Censor. Work elsewhere includes Edward Gant's Amazing Feats of Loneliness (for Headlong Theatre), Stitching (at The Traverse in Edinburgh and London's Bush) and Normal (Edinburgh Festival). His films include "The Debt Collector" and "Deeper Still."
This will be the final production in Dominic Cooke's last season at the Royal Court before he steps down as artistic director in April 2013. Neilson's The Wonderful World of Dissocia was part of Cooke’s inaugural season in 2007.
