Cast announced for The Pitmen Painters

The cast has been announced for the upcoming production The Pitmen Painters, which is transferring to the West End's Duchess theatre later this year.

Stage fans booking London hotels will be able to see Ian Kelly take up the role of Robert Lyon, with Michael Hodgson starring as Harry Wilson and David Whitaker playing Jimmy Floyd.

The trio are joined by Brian Lonsdale (Young Lad/Ben Nicholson), with the actors all reprising the roles they played when the production ran at Live Theatre Newcastle, the National and on Broadway.

They will also be joined Trevor Fox, Joy Brook and Viktoria Kay, who have all previously starred in The Pitmen Painters during its previous runs.

Joe Caffrey, a star of Cooking with Elvis and Billy Elliot is joining the cast to play George Brown.

The show opens at the Duchess theatre on Tuesday October 11th, following previews from Wednesday October 5th.

The production has been given five stars by the Evening Standard, Daily Express, Mail on Sunday and Sunday Express.
