Hound will play Roy, one of four businessmen sent off on a team-building exercise, in this play that revolves around a disastrous outward-bound expedition. They succeed in becoming the first people ever to get shipwrecked on an island in the Lake District. What should have been a bonding process turns into a muddy, bloody fight for survival amid a carnival of recrimination, French cricket and sausages. Hound is currently starring onstage in the West End in One Man, Two Guvnors at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket through Aug. 31 in the lead role of Francis Henshall, which he also played in the U.K. tour.
