From June 14th – July 2nd at the Baron’s Court Theatre you can catch stage and screen star Anna Carteret (Juliet Bravo, plus many more credits, including at the National Theatre and Broadway) in Mother Adam.
Carteret is set to play Mammles in JJB Productions’ rare revival of Charles Dyer’s Mother Adam, a witty and strange insight into loneliness and co-dependency.
Celebrated for his Rattle of a Simple Man, Charles Dyer is considered one of the greatest British playwrights of the 20th Century. The whimsical world of a bed-ridden, arthritic mother and her sprightly son combines deft verbal comedy with buried emotions. Alongside Anna Carteret as the caustic Mammles, John Craggs plays her tragicomic son Adam.
Anna Carteret was part of Laurence Olivier’s company at the Old Vic from 1967 – 1974, including playing alongside him in The Merchant of Venice and winning the Clarence Derwent award for Most Promising Newcomer. She also performed in Peter Brook’s Oedipus, and was part of Peter Hall’s National Theatre repertory company, during which she performed in the world premiere of Romans in Britain.
