Full cast has been announced for new play SORRY, YOU’RE NOT A WINNER written by Samuel Bailey and directed by Jesse Jones.
Eddie-Joe Robinson (Coriolanus at Sheffield Crucible) will take one the role of Liam and co-founder of JAM (Just Add Milk). He will be joined on stage by Kyle Rowe (Beast Of Blue Yonder) as best friend Fletch, with West End star Alice Stokoe (American Idiot, Mamma Mia!) as Shannon and Katja Quist (C-O-N-T-A-C-T) as Georgia.
The show is a coming of age tale about male friendship, class and leaving home: Liam and Fletch grew up together. Born on the same street. Best mates since primary. Inseparable. The only difference was while Fletch was getting suspended from school, Liam was studying. And now he’s going to Oxford. But with Liam gone, who’s going to keep Fletch out of trouble?
It will debut at Theatre Royal Plymouth from 24 February for a limited 2 week run before touring around the UK. The tour will visit cities such as Bristol and Newcastle with further dates to be announced.
Alongside the show, Paines Plough and Theatre Royal Plymouth are working on extensive outreach programmes. These include two paid placement opportunities to University of Plymouth students – Cultural Ambassador and Trainee Assistant Director; a two week writer’s residency to two University of Plymouth students, exploring Paines Plough’s processes creating new work; and a new writing project in collaboration with the university. The new writing project will see Paines Plough work with over 50 students to create short plays from the page to the stage.
