The cast has been announced for Kiln Theatre artistic director Indhu Rubasingham’s world premiere production of Alexis Zegerman’s Holy Sh!t, the first in the newly refurbished venue (previously the Tricycle), reopening after a major capital redevelopment project. The production runs from 5 September to 6 October 2018 (press night is 10 September).
In the cast are: Daon Broni (Nick), Claire Goose (Juliet), Daniel Lapaine (Sam) and Dorothea Myer-Bennett (Simone).
