Goodman-Hill will play Gerado, husband to Thandie Newton's Paulina, and Calf will play Dr. Roberto Miranda, whom Paulina is convinced is the person who once brutally interrogated her when she was a political prisoner, and she now seeks to hold to account.
Goodman-Hill, who was Olivier-nominated for his performance in Monty Python's Spamalot for Best Supporting Performer in a Musical, has also appeared in the West End in Enron and An Inspector Calls. He has also appeared at the National in Earthquakes in London and Tartuffe, and for the RSC in Bartholomew Fair, Talk of the City and The Two Gentlemen of Verona.
Calf is currently appearing at Chichester Festival Theatre in The Deep Blue Sea, and has appeared widely at the National, Royal Court and Donmar Warehouse. Recent credits include Les Parents Terribles (Donmar at the Trafalgar Studios), The White Guard and The Power of Yes (both National). His recent TV credits include "Upstairs Downstairs" (the 2010 remake) and "Holby City."
The play is directed by Jeremy Herrin, deputy artistic director at the Royal Court, who is currently represented in London by Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare's Globe. He will also direct the world premiere of David Hare's South Downs at Chichester's Minerva Theatre in September.
