Full Casting Announced for David Hare's Plenty, Starring Rachel Weisz and Corey Stoll
Emily Bergl, Byron Jennings, and more will also appear in the Public Theater's revival of the Tony-nominated drama.
The Public Theater has announced complete casting for its upcoming production of David Hare's Plenty, starring Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener) and Corey Stoll (Troilus and Cressida). The first major New York revival of this Tony-nominated drama, the Public's production will be directed by five-time Tony Award nominee David Leveaux. The show will begin previews October 4 and run through November 6, with an official press opening on October 20.
In addition to Weisz as Susan Traherne and Stoll as Raymond Brock, the complete cast of Plenty features Pun Bandhu (M. Aung), Ken Barnett (Codename Lazar), Emily Bergl (Alice Park), Dani De Waal (Louise), Mike Iveson (Another Frenchman), Byron Jennings (Leonard Darwin), LeRoy McClain (Mick), Tim Nicolai (John Begley), Paul Niebanck (Sir Andrew Charleson), Ann Sanders (Mme. Aung), Benjamin Thys (A Frenchman), and Liesel Allen Yeager (Dorcas).
The play follows Susan Traherne, a British secret agent flown into France during World War II. Her experiences over the two decades that follow paint the portrait of a remarkably brave woman who finds in peacetime the values and relationships she cherished in war. After its initial Public Theater run in 1982, the drama transferred to Broadway in 1983, receiving a Tony nomination for Best Play.
Plenty features scenic design by Mike Britton, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting design by David Weiner, original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem, and hair and wig design by Leah J. Loukas.
