Tom Goodman-Hill plays Gerado, husband to Thandie Newton's Paulina, and Anthony Calf plays 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 in the play.

Newton is best known for her film credits in such features as "Crash" (for which she won a BAFTA), "Beloved," "Mission Impossible II," "2012" and "Huge."

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.

Calf appeared on stage most recently 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 was recently represented in London by Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare's Globe and the world premiere of David Hare's South Downs at Chichester's Minerva Theatre.
