London’s Southwark Playhouse has announced that J.M. Barrie’s rarely performed Dear Brutus will play a limited engagement this holiday season in a new production from U.K. group Troupe with direction by Jonathan O’Boyle.
Performances will run November 29–December 30. Casting has not yet been announced.
Set in 1917 in a remote English village, a mysterious old man invites eight strangers for dinner. When they stumble upon an enchanted forest, the guests feel compelled to enter, changing their lives forever.
Billed as a “haunting drama of self-revelation,” the play comes from the mind of celebrated Peter Pan playwright Barrie. O’Boyle’s directing credits include Pippin and Hair at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester, among many others.
Dear Brutus will feature designs by Anna Reid, lighting design by Peter Harrison, and sound design by Max Perryment.
Troupe returns to the Southwark Playhouse following its acclaimed production of The Cardinal.
