Casting Announced for Mike Bartlett's Bull at Brits Off Broadway
By Adam Hetrick
Casting has been announced for Bull, the companion piece to British playwright Mike Bartlett's three-person drama Cock, which will receive its American premiere as part of the Brits Off Broadway line-up in April.
Bull, directed by Clare Lizzimore, recently concluded a run at the Crucible Studio, Sheffield. It will begin Off-Broadway performances April 25 for a limited run through June 2 at 59E59 Theaters.
The cast will feature Adam James (Don't Dress for Dinner, The Pride), Eleanor Matsuura (Danton's Death, Enron), Neil Stuke (Blue/Orange) and Sam Troughton (Romeo & Juliet).
Here's how it's billed: "Two jobs. Three candidates. This would be a really bad time to have a stain on your shirt… Bull is a razor-sharp play about office politics; or playground bullying – depending which side you're on."
The design team includes Soutra Gilmour (set design), Peter Mumford (lighting design) and Christopher Shutt (sound). The choreographer is Alistair David. The fight director is Christian Thompson.
Bartlett's plays also include Earthquakes in London, Love Love Love, Artefacts, Contradictions and My Child.
Tickets to Brits Off Broadway are available by calling Ticket Central at (212) 279-4200 or online at 59e59.org.
