Theatre News: All-Star Cast announced for socially-distant season at Theatre Royal Windsor


Casting has been announced for an upcoming season of socially-distanced productions at Theatre Royal Windsor

In a bid to bring theatre back to Windsor, stars including Will Young, Iain Glen and Felicity Kendal will appear onstage to perform radio versions of popular plays. Audiences will watch as the actors perform standing on stage with microphones and scripts in hand at the Theatre Royal, allowing the theatre to adhere to social-distancing measures.

This season will see four shows performed in this way. First up, Iain Glen and Charlotte Emmerson will star in an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s psychological thriller Love From A Stranger from the 20th to the 24th October.

From the 27th to the 31st October, Jenny Seagrove will take the lead in On Air Theatre Company’s production of Alan Bennett’s The Lady In The Van. This will be followed by a socially-distanced version of Wiliam Douglas Home’s classic comedy Lloyd George Knew My Father from the 3rd to the 7th of November featuring Felicity Kendal and Tom Conti.

The season will conclude with a production of Herb Gardner’s comedy-drama A Thousand Clowns from the 10th to 14th November. Will Young, Andrew Lancel, Issac Lancel-Watkinson and Beatrice Curnew will star.
