On Oct.15 2011, Occupy London makes camp outside St Paul’s Cathedral. On Oct. 21, a building that remained open through the World War II Blitz, terrorist threats and floods, closes its doors. On Oct. 28, the City of London initiates legal action to begin removing Occupy London from outside the Cathedral. The play provides a fictional account of these events, set in the heart of a very British crisis – a crisis of conscience, a crisis of authority and a crisis of faith.
Beale plays the cathedral's Dean. He has previously appeared at the Donmar in The Philanthropist, Twelfth Night and Uncle Vanya (for which he won the 2003 Olivier Award for Best Actor).
The cast also features Anna Calder-Marshall, Paul Higgins, Rebecca Humphries, Shereen Martin and Malcolm Sinclair.
