I and the Village, by award-winning playwright Silva Semerciyan will have its world premiere at Theatre503 in June. It is a coming of age story that sees school girl Aimee Straight walk into the town church with a gun and provokes questions around what it takes for somebody to do something so radical.
Promising newcomer Chloe Harris ((Scuttlers (Royal Exchange Theatre), Banana (E4), The Village (BBC1)) will take on the role as Aimee in what will be only her second stage appearance to date. Joining her will be Stephanie Schonfield ((Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell (UK tour), Wait Until Dark(Watford Palace Theatre), Tonight at 8.30 (Perth Rep)) as Aimee’s mother, Robin.
The cast also includes: Chereen Buckley ((Custody (Royal Festival Hall), Happy Ever After(Theatre503), Law & Order: UK (Kudos/ITV)) as Tisha; Killian Macardle ((Hamlet, Antigone (Royal Central School of Speech & Drama), Jack and the Beanstalk (Park Theatre)) as Wade; Charlotte Melia ((The Window (Bristol Old Vic), Manchester (Arcola Theatre), Never So Good (National Theatre)) as Misa; and David Michaels ((Question Time (Arcola Theatre), The Winter’s Tale(Regent’s Park), Tactical Questioning (Tricycle Theatre)) as Randy. David was also in Nowhere in Africa which won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2003.
