Dreyfus, Harman, Shearsmith, et al. Set for Common Pursuit Revival logo
Nigel Harman
James Dreyfus, Nigel Harman, Reece Shearsmith, Robert Portal, Ben Caplan, and Mary Stockley will star in a major new revival of Simon Gray's 1984 comedy The Common Pursuit, which will have a limited season at Southwark's Menier Chocolate Factory, May 9-July 20. The production is directed by Fiona Laird, and designed by Anthony Lamble, with lighting by Hartley TA Kemp.

A study in how friendships evolve and outlast their original form, Gray's play charts the progress of a group of Cambridge undergraduates who launch a literary publication, but find it hard to stay true to the ideals of their youth in the world beyond.
