Oxford Stage Company Moves Into Tricycle with Singer

News   Oxford Stage Company Moves Into Tricycle with Singer The Oxford Stage Company is set to open its season at the Tricycle Theatre in London’s Kilburn. The first production will be Peter Flannery’s Singer, opening March 15.

Sean Holmes, who enjoyed huge success with his Tricycle production of Arthur Miller’s The Price, returns to the venue for Flannery’s tale of anti-hero Peter Singer, a Polish Jew whose experiences run the gamut during 40 years of post-war London life. Originally a great success for Anthony Sher and the Royal Shakespeare Company, RSC veteran Ron Cook plays the title role. The cast also includes John Light as Stefan, Edward Peel as Manik, as well as Hattie Morahan, Joanne Howarth, Fred Ridgeway, Fergus O’Donnell, Jamie Parker, Chike Okonwo, Alan Westaway, Jasmine Hyde and Jaqueline Kington. Design is by Anthony Lamble, lighting by Paul Anderson and sound by Fergus O’Hare.

From April 13, the company will play Brendan Behan’s The Quare Fellow, which moves to the theatre after a seven-week national tour. It will be directed by Kathy Burke. Burke is best known as an award-winning film and television actress, but is building up her directing credits with fare such as this and the recent Kosher Harry at the Royal Court.
