Casting for the World Premiere of Revealed at Tobacco Factory Theatres has been released, with Daniel J Carver, Everal A Walsh and Dylan Brady announced to play three generations of one family in this world premiere run.
The new work, which will be performed at the South Bristol theatre this September, is set against the backdrop of an uprising after an incident in police custody which has shaken the nation. The family drama tackles themes of racism, masculinity, sexuality and mental health.
“I’ve had the opportunity to play some great parts, including Lord Clifford in Henry VI Parts 2 and 3 at the RSC earlier this year,” actor and the play’s writer Daniel J Carver said.
“One of the themes of this play is toxic masculinity and Malcolm is a very challenging and complex character in this sense. I grew up around men like Malcolm and I have been a Malcolm at various points in my life, so there is a deep connection there for me. I feel that I am at a stage in my life that I have experienced enough to bring the whole of me to this character.”
Revealed has been created with support from the National Theatre’s Generate programme and co-commissioned by Tobacco Factory Theatres and The Red Earth Collective
Tobacco Factory Theatres’ Associate Director Jay Zorenti-Nakhid, is directing the play. He said: “We are so happy to be announcing this brilliant cast today, in what will be my first production at Tobacco Factory Theatres as Associate Director. We’re particularly thrilled that Everal A Walsh will play our grand-father Sidney, having already workshopped the role at the National Theatre Studio earlier this year. We’re also very excited to welcome the incredible talent that is Dylan Brady, who will play teenager Luther, in his first professional stage performance, after playing Danny in Coronation Street for the last two years.
“Daniel J Carver and I have been on this journey to get REVEALED produced since we started working on it together in 2018. I could not be more excited that Dan will also play the role of Malcolm – son of Sidney and father to Luther – in his own brilliant, moving and hilarious play”.
The play is recommended for those age 14 years upwards with a run time of 2 hours 10 minutes – including interval.
There will be two socially distanced performances on Saturday 01 October at 2pm and Tuesday 04 October at 7.30pm.
Revealed is booking now and will be at Tobacco Factory Theatres from 22 – 08 October 2022.
