Greig’s Cosmonaut Launches at Donmar April 12

News   Greig’s Cosmonaut Launches at Donmar April 12 Ahead of the U.K. debut of Neil LaBute’s This Is How It Goes at the Donmar Warehouse on May 31, Scottish playwright David Greig has an opening on April 12.

His play, snappily titled The Cosmonaut’s Last Message to the Woman He Once Loved in the Former Soviet Union, is directed by Tim Supple.

It depicts two cosmonauts orbiting a world that cannot hear them, and explores our inability to communicate and our need to connect. The cast features Brid Brennan, Sean Campion, Tom Goodman-Hill, Paul Higgins, Anna Madeley, Stuart McGugan and Michael Pennington.

Melly Still provides the designs, Nail Austin the lighting and David Arnold (house composer for the James Bond movies) the music. Sound is by Fergus O’Hare.

Greig’s other plays include Suspect Culture, his version of Caligula (seen at the Donmar in 2003) and San Diego. The Cosmonaut’s Message to the Woman He Once Loved in the Former Soviet Union was first performed at Hammersmith’s Lyric Studios in 1999.
