Zoë Wanamaker and John Dagleish Join Line-up for Kenneth Branagh West End Season

News   Zoë Wanamaker and John Dagleish Join Line-up for Kenneth Branagh West End Season
 
Zoë Wanamaker and John Dagleish have joined the line-up of the opening productions of the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company at the West End's Garrick Theatre.

Wanamker will perform Terence Rattigan's one-woman play All on Her Own prior to Harlequinade (in which she will also appear) each night as part of a double-bill, and Olivier winner John Dagliesh (winning for Sunny Afternoon) will appear in both Harlequinade and The Winter's Tale.

The productions will play in repertoire beginning performances Oct. 17, prior to an official opening Nov. 7, at the Garrick Theatre for a run through Jan. 16, 2016.

All On Her Own has never before played in the West End. It revolves around a woman with a secret, alone at midnight in London, who has a burden to share.

In a press statement, Branagh commented, "Zoë Wanamaker is a brilliant comedienne and a great tragic actress too. In joining us for the Rattigan comedy we seized on the opportunity to let her show us the dramatic side of a playwright also known as 'the English Chekhov.' The rarely seen All On Her Own Own provides a fabulous woman's role, and makes for an intriguingly balanced double bill."

Wanamaker and Dagleish join Pierre Atri, Jaygann Ayeh, Tom Bateman, Kenneth Branagh, Jessie Buckley, Vera Chok, Jack Colgrave Hirst, Judi Dench, Hadley Fraser, Rudi Goodman, Matthew Hawksley, Pip Jordan, Ansu Kabia, Stuart Neal, Michael Pennington, Zoё Rainey, Miranda Raison, John Shrapnel, Kathryn Wilder and Jimmy Yuill.
