Previously Posted: Full casting has been announced for the UK premiere of Lauren Gunderson’s I and You, which runs at Hampstead Theatre (Main Stage) from October 25 (previews from October 18) to November 24, 2018.

Zach Wyatt will star as Anthony alongside previously announced Maisie Williams as Caroline.

Directed by Artistic Director Edward Hall, I and You is about friendship, adolescent innocence and living life to the full.

Did my mother set this up? She would totally do this – make something up just to make me feel involved. I have a life, ok: I text. A lot.

Housebound because of illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months. Confined to her room, she has only Instagram and Facebook for company. That is until classmate Anthony bursts in – uninvited and armed with waffle fries, a scruffy copy of Walt Whitman’s poetry and a school project due in the next day… Caroline is unimpressed all round.

But an unlikely friendship develops and a seemingly mundane piece of homework starts to reveal the pair’s hopes and dreams – as well as a deep and mysterious bond that connects them even further.

Maisie Williams will make her stage debut as Caroline. Her film work includes New Mutants; Departures; Early Man; iBoy; The Book of Love; The Falling (European Shooting Star Award 2015 at the Berlin Film Festival, 2016 London Critics’ Circle Award for Best Young performer and Evening Standard Rising Star Award) and Heatstroke.

Williams’ television work includes Game of Thrones (series regular – Seasons 1 to 8 – three Emmy nominations, two Portal awards in 2012 for best supporting actress and best young actor in television, Radio 1 Teen Award 2013 for Best British Actor, 2014 nomination as one of the UK’s international screen stars of tomorrow and Entertainment Weekly’s Award for Best Supporting Actress); CyberBully (BAFTA nomination for best single drama); Doctor Who; The Secret of Crickley Hall and Robot Kitchen.

Zach Wyatt graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in June 2018. I and You is his professional debut.

Lauren Gunderson is the most produced playwright in America of 2017/18, two-time winner of the Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award, the winner of the Lanford Wilson Award and the Otis Guernsey New Voices Award. She is also a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and John Gassner Award for Playwriting, and a recipient of the Mellon Foundation’s 3-Year Residency with Marin Theatre Company.
