Alfie Allen, best known for the role of Theon Greyjoy in TV's Game of Thrones; Katie Brayben, Olivier Award winner for originating the role of Carole King in the West End bow of Beautiful; and Annapurna Sriram from the original Off-Broadway production of Jessie Eisenberg's The Spoils will join the previously announced Eisenberg and Kunal Nayyar in the West End transfer of that New Group production.

The Spoils will begin performances May 27 at the Trafalgar Studios, prior to an official opening June 2, for a run through August 13.

In the play, nobody likes Ben (played by Eisenberg). Ben doesn’t even like Ben. He bullies everyone in his life, including his roommate Kalyan (Nayyar), an earnest Nepalese immigrant. When Ben discovers that his school crush is marrying a straitlaced banker, he sets out to destroy their relationship and win her back.

Allen, who plays Ted, is making his West End debut. He was previously seen onstage in a national tour of Equus. His other TV credits include the upcoming Close To The Enemy, Accused, Moving On, Freefall, Casualty 1907, Coming Up, Joe’s Palace, Jericho and The Golden Hour. His film credits include John Wick, Plastic, The Body, Confine, Powder, Freestyle, Soulboy, Atonement, The Other Boleyn Girl and Stoned.

Brayben, who plays Sarah, is currently in My Mother Said I Never Should at the St. James Theatre. Other theatre credits include the original Almeida and West End production of King Charles III, and American Psycho at the Almeida Theatre.

Sriram, who plays Reshma, is making her West End debut. Her screen credits include Billions, alongside Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis, and the series South of Hell with Mena Suvari and Zachary Booth.

The New Group production is being brought to the West End by Ambassador Theatre Group and Lisa Matlin. It has set design by Derek McLane, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen and projection design by Olivia Sebesky.
