This collaboration will feature two of the country’s most distinguished actors – Don Warrington MBE (RISING DAMP, DEATH IN PARADISE) and Doña Croll (CASUALTY, DOCTORS).

They play Joe and Kate Keller, an all-American couple who have the ghosts of World War II living in their own backyard.

Joe is a successful, self-made businessman, a loving family man and a pillar of the community. He is a partner in a machine shop building fighter plane parts. One thing overshadows Joe and Kate’s happiness – their son is missing in action, presumed dead by all but his mother.

Set in 1947, this searing investigation of honesty, guilt and the corrupting power of greed was Arthur Miller’s first success, establishing him as a leading voice in theatre.

The cast also includes Delroy Atkinson, Simon Coombs, Andrea Davy, Roger Griffiths, Kemi-Bo Jacobs, Bethan Mary-James and Chiké Okonkwo.

The production is directed by Michael Buffong, Artistic Director of Talawa Theatre Company. His previous credits for the Royal Exchange include the multi award-winning A RAISIN IN THE SUN and PRIVATE LIVES.

Talawa Theatre Company is Britain’s primary black-led theatre company, producing work that has had a major impact on the British theatrical landscape since 1987.
