We can now announce a casting update for the world première of Sandi Toksvig’s new comedy Silver Lining, a co-production with English Touring Theatre and Rose Theatre Kingston.
Sheila Reid plays Gloria, with Rachel Davies as Maureen, Keziah Joseph as Hope, Maggie McCarthy as May, Joanna Monro as June and Amanda Walker as St Michael in the production directed by Rebecca Gatward (who previously directed Beryl at the Rose). It opens at Rose Theatre Kingston on Fri 3 Feb, before touring to Portsmouth, Oxford, Cambridge, Ipswich, Keswick, York and Salford.
The play is written by Sandi Toksvig, an actor, presenter and political activist. Her previous writing for the stage includes the musical Big Night Out at the Little Sands Picture Palace and The Pocket Dream. Until last year she was the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz and this month she took over from Stephen Fry as the host of BBC television quiz show QI. She is the joint founder of the Women’s Equality Party which was established in March 2015.
