Casting news

FULL casting has been announced for the West End transfer of Caroline, Or Change, which runs at the Playhouse Theatre from November 20, 2018 to February 9, 2019, following sold out engagements at Chichester Festival Theatre and Hampstead Theatre.

As previously announced, the cast will be led by Olivier Award-winning actress Sharon D. Clarke who will be reprising her critically acclaimed role as Caroline Thibodeaux.

She will be joined by Naana Agyei-Ampadu, Keisha Amponsa Banson, Alastair Brookshaw, Me’sha Bryan, Angela Caesar, Dujonna Gift-Simms, Sue Kelvin, Teddy Kempner, Ako Mitchell, Abiona Omonua, Vincent Pirillo, Tanisha Spring and Lauren Ward with Cassiopeia Berkeley-Agyepong, Zalika Henry, Laura Medforth, Timothy Quinlan and Teddy Wills.

Nine young performers have been cast in the roles of Noah, Jackie and Joe. Isaac Forward, Aaron Gelkoff and Jack Meredith will alternate the role of Noah, Mark Mwangi, Kenya Sandy and Jeremiah Waysome will alternate the role of Jackie and the role of Joe will be alternated by Josiah Choto, David Dube and Raphael Higgins-Hume.

Written by Tony Kushner (Angels in America) and with a soaring score from Tony Award-winning Jeanine Tesori, Caroline, Or Change is set in Louisiana in 1963. Revolution is in the air, though not so much for Caroline, the poorly paid maid toiling endlessly in the sweltering basement of the Gellman household.

It’s a fantastical, magical place amidst the piles of laundry and singing washing machines, especially for eight-year-old Noah Gellman who sneaks downstairs to see her whenever he can. Yet a simple gesture to leave more money in Caroline’s pocket is about to test who and how far the winds of change can ever really reach…

Caroline, Or Change is directed by Michael Longhurst.
