This month the Oldham Coliseum Theatre started rehearsals for Barney Norris' compassionate and wryly comic love story "Visitors". Find out the cast by clicking read more.
Robin Herford, who directed Coliseum productions Relatively Speaking, Gaslight and Boeing Boeing, returns in an acting role to play Arthur. Robin has appeared in the original production of more of Alan Ayckbourn plays than any other actor and is best known as the director of Steven Mallatratt’s phenomenally successful adaptation of The Woman in Black, which has been running in the West End for 30 years.
Liz Crowther (Edie), Kitty Doughlas (Kate) and Ben Porter (Stephen) complete the cast of four who will be directed by Acting Artistic Director Chris Lawson (A Skull In Connemara, A Taste of Honey, The Kitchen Sink).
In a rural farmhouse, a family is falling apart. Stephen can’t afford to put his mother into care; Arthur can’t afford to stop working and look after his wife.
When a young stranger with blue hair moves in to care for Edie as her mind unravels, the entire family are forced to question what the future holds and who gets to choose how they live their lives.
Visitors premiered at The Arcola Theatre, London in 2014, winning the Critics Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright and Best New Play at the Off West End Theatre Awards.
