News London's Almeida Theatre Announces Full Cast for Children's Children
London's Almeida Theatre has announced the full cast for the world premiere of Matthew Dunster's Children's Children, which begins performances May 17 prior to an official opening May 24, for a run through June 30.

Jeremy Herrin will direct a cast that comprises Emily Berrington (Effie), Beth Cordingley (Louisa), Darrell D'Silva (Michael), Trevor Fox (Gordon), John Macmillan (Castro) and Sally Rogers (Sally). In the play, Michael (D'Silva) and Gordon (Fox) have been best friends since acting college. Now, 20 years later, Michael is Mr. Saturday Night TV, but Gordon, a failing actor, is struggling with enormous debts. Gordon's daughter Effie (Berrington) couldn't care less about her dad's problems, but is more interested in the film that her boyfriend is making and setting up her own clothing label. When Gordon asks Michael to lend him a large sum of money, it sets in motion a series of events that reveal irreparable cracks in the characters' relationships.
