News   Miller's Man Who Had All the Luck Opens at London's Donmar March 5
The Donmar Warehouse's revival of Arthur Miller's 1944 play The Man Who Had All the Luck officially opens March 5 following previews that began Feb. 28.

The production will run through April 5; a tour, beginning April 8, will play Salford's Lowry, the Liverpool Playhouse and the Hall for Cornwall in Truro.

Miller's American fable revolves around one man's struggle to change his fate – and asks the question, "Is there such a thing as too much luck?" David Beeves' life can't get much better – but as the lives of those around him begin to crumble, he starts to question his own identity.

Directed by Sean Holmes, who makes his Donmar directorial debut with the production, the cast comprises Andrew Buchan, Felix Scott and Michelle Terry.

Buchan, who plays David Beeves, has previously appeared in Posh (Royal Court), Ship of Fools (Theatre 503) and Romeo and Juliet (Manchester’s Royal Exchange). His TV credits include "The Fixer," "Cranford Chronicles," "Whistleblower," "Party Animals" and "Jane Eyre"; on film he has appeared in "The Deaths of Ian Stone."

Scott, who plays Amos Beeves, has been seen in Sentenced (Union Theatre), Breaktime (Pleasance) and Lost Yet Found (Hampstead), and appeared with the National Youth Tehatre in Nicholas Nickleby and Kes at Lyric Hammersmith. His TV work includes "Lewis," "Wire in the Blood," "Victoria Cross Heroes" and "Synchronicity." Terry, who playks Hester Flak, has appeared in Love's Labour's Lost (Shakespeare's Globe) and The Winter's Tale, Pericles, Days of Signficance and The Crucible (all RSC).

Holmes has previously directed Miller's The Price, first at the Tricycle and subsequently in the West End. Other credits include Moonlight and Magnolias (Tricycle), The Entertainer (Old Vic), The Caucasian Chalk Circle and Translations (both National Theatre), Julius Caesar and A New Way to Please You (both RSC), Cleansed and Home (both Oxford Stage Company) and Incomplete and Random Acts of Kindness (Royal Court).
