News   Royal Court Casting To Include Kim Cattrall, David Morrissey, Reece Shearmith and More
 
London's Royal Court has announced that casting for its production of Martin McDonagh's Hangmen will include David Morrissey (last seen on the London stage in Neil LaBute's In a Dark Dark House at the Almeida) , Reece Shearsmith (Betty Blue Eyes) and Johnny Flynn (Jerusalem).

Kim Cattrall will return to the London stage to star in Penelope Skinner's Linda. She was last seen in the West End in Sweet Bird of Youth at the Old Vic in 2013.

The previously announced world premiere of Hangmen, is directed by Matthew Dunster. It begins performances Sept. 10 prior to an official opening Sept. 17 for a run in the main house Jerwood Theatre Downstairs through Oct. 10. The cast also includes Josef Davies, James Dryden, Graeme Hawley, Ralph Ineson, Bronwyn James, Ryan Pope, Sally Rogers and Simon Rouse.

Set in a small pub in Oldham, the play tells the story of Harry, who is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging? Amongst those dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, a peculiar stranger lurks, with a very different motive for his visit.

Linda, which begins performances Nov. 25 prior to an official opening Dec. 8 in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs for a run through Jan. 9, will be directed by Michael Longhurst and revolves around Linda Wilde, who has dedicated her life to changing the world. She's won awards for her efforts, at the same time as working hard to become an inspiring mother, and an independent, loving wife. Now, at 55, she seems to have it all. But Linda isn't satisfied. She's a woman in her prime and she's embarking on her most ambitious plan to date. Beneath the surface, the cracks are starting to show.
