Casting news

SHAKESPEARE’S Globe has announced further casting for Everything I Ever Wanted to Tell My Daughter About Men, a new black comedy by actor and writer Lorien Haynes, directed by Tara Fitzgerald (Brassed Off, Game of Thrones), being hosted in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse on Thursday, February 20, 2020.

Saffron Burrows, Oliver Chris and Belinda Stewart-Wilson join previously announced Jason Isaacs, Lorien Haynes, Jonathan Firth, Joe Sims and Charlie Field. Read more.

The cast also includes Enzo Cilenti and Matthew Cooke.

Everything I Ever Wanted to Tell My Daughter About Men traces a woman’s relationship history backwards, exploring the impact of sexual assault, addiction and teen pregnancy on her adult relationships. Presented in association with RISE and The Circle, all profits from this event will go towards supporting survivors of sexual violence.

Thanks in huge part to RISE’s work, the event will also mark the planned introduction of the Worldwide Sexual Violence Survivor Rights United Nations Resolution later this year, which addresses the global issue of sexual violence and pens into existence the civil rights of millions of survivors.

Nobel-Prize nominee and founder of RISE, Amanda Nguyen, will introduce the evening.

A silent auction will also take place on the night to highlight and raise awareness for the support networks available to those in need. Audience members will be able to bid on props from the production as well as a selection of especially commissioned rotary phones, exclusively designed by acclaimed British artists including Harland Miller, Natasha Law, Bella Freud and Emma Sargeant. The money raised by each phone will go to a rape crisis helpline chosen by the artist.

Saffron Burrows has appeared in a number of film and television roles, having most recently starred as Dottie Quinn in the Netflix series You and as Cynthia Taylor in the Golden Globe-winning Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle. Her film credits include Quitters, Knife Fight and Small Apartments. Burrows was also nominated for two Screen Actors Guild awards with the cast of ABC’s Boston Legal for outstanding performance by an ensemble.

Oliver Chris is an actor, writer and director returning to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse after compiling and dramatizing Ralegh: The Treason Trial in 2018. He has also co-authored Jack Absolute Flies Again, premiering at the National Theatre in April, and is known in the theatre for his roles in One Man, Two Guvnors (National Theatre, West End, Broadway), King Charles III (Almeida, West End, Broadway), and Twelfth Night (National Theatre).

Belinda Stewart-Wilson is best known for playing the role of Polly Mackenzie in all three television series and both films of The Inbetweeners. Her other television credits include Sick Note (Sky Atlantic), Hetty Feather, Ripper Street, Citizen Khan, Miranda (BBC) and Primeval (ITV).

Eve Mavrakis will art direct. Mavrakis is known for her work on films such as Empire of the Sun, Dangerous Liaisons and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Jessica Rose Weiss will compose. Weiss has worked on films including The Addams Family, The Eight Hundred and Burying Yasmeen.
