News   Casting Complete for World Premiere of Zinnie Harris' How to Hold Your Breath at London's Royal Court
 
Full casting has been announced for the world premiere of Zinnie Harris' How to Hold Your Breath, beginning performances Feb. 4 prior to an official opening Feb. 10 at London's Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs, for a run through March 21.

According to press materials, the play looks at the true cost of principles and how we live now. Starting with a seemingly innocent one-night stand, the play dives into our recent European history.

Royal Court artistic director Vicky Featherstone directs a cast led by Maxine Peake and also features Christine Bottomley, Neil D'Souza, Peter Forbes, Siobhán McSweeney, Maxine Peake, Danusia Samal and Michael Shaeffer.

The production is designed by Chloe Lamford, with lighting by Paul Constable, music by Stuart Earl, sound design by Gareth Fry and movement by Ann Yee.

Peake most recently appeared onstage in the title role of Hamlet at Manchester's Royal Exchange. She has previously appeared at the Royal Court in Mother Theresa Is Dead and at the National in The Cherry Orchard, The Relapse and Luther. Her extensive TV credits include "Silk," "The Village," "The Street" and "Shameless." In 2014 she wrote her first radio play "Beryl: A Love Story on Two Wheels," which was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and subsequently adapted and produced for the stage at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds.
