Casting news

FULL casting has been announced for Tartuffe, the West End’s first ever dual-language production, which runs at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from May 25 to July 28, 2018.

Joining previously announced Paul Anderson and Audrey Fleurot will be George Blagden, Sebastian Roché and Olivia Ross.

Molière’s classic comedy re-imagines Tartuffe as a radical American evangelist who uproots the life of a French film tycoon in Hollywood.

Sebastian Roché will make his West End stage debut as Orgon, a French media mogul living in Hollywood, who unwittingly becomes hoodwinked by Tartuffe.

Roché’s screen credits include the HBO series Young Pope alongside Jude Law, Man In The High Castle (Amazon) and The Vampire Diaries (The CW). His stage credits include Julie Taymor’s Broadway production of The Green Bird (Mandell Weiss Theater) and Salome opposite Al Pacino (Square Theater). He also co-stars in the upcoming second season of the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series Genius.

Pictures).
