News: Cast announced for Alan Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking at The Mill At Sonning

The cast has been announced for the next show at The Mill At Sonning – a sparkling new production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking. A comedy of mistaken identities and excruciating misunderstandings, it was his first great West End success and turned him into a household name. Relatively Speaking’will run for 8 weeks from 27 February – 18 April.

Greg only met Ginny a month ago, but he knows they’re meant for each other. When she announces that she’s going to visit her parents, Greg decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter’s hand. Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden, but the only thing is – they’re not Ginny’s parents!

The cast includes Christopher Bonwell  as Greg, Rachel Fielding as Sheila, Lianne Harvey as Ginny and James Simmons as Philip.

Relatively Speaking is directed by Robin Herford, with set design by Michael Holt and costume design by Natalie Titchener.

Alan Ayckbourn is an Olivier and Tony Award- winning playwright whose work has been translated into 35 languages. Knighted in 1997, he is the first British playwright to receive both Olivier and Tony Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Robin Herford has a long association with Ayckbourn’s work, and was Artistic Director of the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough. He directed ‘The Woman in Black’, which has run for 30 years in the West End.

This Mill at Sonning production will transfer to Jermyn Street Theatre, London from Tuesday 21 April – Saturday 16 May.
