News   Full Cast Announced for World Premiere of Simon Stephens' Birdland at London's Royal Court Theatre
 
The full cast has been announced for the world premiere of Simon Stephens' Birdland, which begins performances at the Royal Court's Jerwood Theatre Downstairs April 3 prior to an official opening April 9, for a run through May 31.

Joining the previously announced Andrew Scott are Nikki Amuka-Bird, Daniel Cerqueira, Yolanda Kettle, Alex Price and Charlotte Randle.

Carrie Cracknell will direct the play that is described as looking at fame, money and an out-of-control front man. Set on the last week of a massive international tour, rock star Paul (to be played by Andrew Scott) is at the height of his fame. Everybody knows his name. Whatever he wants he can have. He can screw anybody he wants to. He can buy anything he desires. He can eat anything. Drink anything. Smoke anything. Go anywhere. As the inevitability of the end of the road looms closer, and a return home becomes a reality, for Paul, the music is starting to jar.

Scott was last seen at the Royal Court in Mike Bartlett's Cock. Other Royal Court credits include Dying City, A Girl In A Car With A Man, Playing The Victim, Crave and Dublin Carol. On Broadway he was seen in The Vertical Hour. TV credits include "Dates," "The Town" and "Sherlock," for the latter of which he won the 2012 Best Supporting Actor BAFTA for his role as Moriarty.

The production will be designed by Ian MacNeil with costumes by Holly Waddington, lighting by Neil Austin and music and sound by Tom Mills.
