Casting announced for Hello/Goodbye
Date Posted: 31/12/14
Hampstead Theatre has confirmed casting for its high profile production of Hello/Goodbye, a comedy by Peter Souter that markets itself as a modern metropolitan guide to falling in and out of love.
As previously announced, Shaun Evans and Miranda Raison will take the lead roles of Juliet and Sam, a pair of singletons who are forced to live in the same flat due to a mistake with the estate agent, and end up getting together and marrying each other.
They will be joined by theatrical professionals Bathsheba Piepe and Luke Neal, who will complete the cast. Piepe, a graduate of the London Academy for Music and Dramatic Art, previously appeared in Belleville Rendez-Vous and ITV's The Village That Forgot.
Neal's credits include television programmes such as Prime Suspect and The Bill, as well as theatre such as Dreamstory, Six Degrees of Separation and Richard II, Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 and Henry V with the Royal Shakespeare Society.
Writer Peter Souter debuted Hello/Goodbye in 2013 to great acclaim, with critics praising the dry wit and confidence of the writing. The production was previously helmed by Tamara Harvey at the Hampstead Downstairs.
Harvey returns to direct this newest incarnation of the production at the Hampstead Theatre's Main Stage, set to open on January 21st. Its return to the London theatre scene will give theatre enthusiasts who missed it the first time around the opportunity to experience the story.
Those keen to secure tickets had better do so quickly as Hello/Goodbye will run only until February 28th, with evening performances Monday to Saturday at 7:30pm and matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
