Casting is complete for the world premiere of Terry Johnson's The Sex Party, which will begin performances at London's Menier Chocolate Factory November 4 prior to an official opening November 15.
Directed by the playwright, the limited engagement will continue through January 7, 2023. The cast will feature Will Barton as Tim, Amanda Donohoe as Magdalena, Lisa Dwan as Gilly, John Hopkins as Jake, Oscar winner Timothy Hutton as Jeff, Jason Merrells as Alex, Pooya Mohseni as Lucy, Molly Osborne as Hetty, and Kelly Price as Camilla.
In the play, four couples gather in a suburban London home for an evening of wine, cheese, and more intimate pleasures. Some are curious, some are more familiar, and one is rather unexpected.
The production will also have designs by Tim Shortall, lighting by Ben Ormerod, and sound by John Leonard.
Playwright-director Johnson won the 2010 Tony for Best Direction of a Musical for directing the revival of La Cage aux Folles. His playwriting credits include Dead Funny, Prism, Ken, Insignificance, Cries from the Mammal House, Hysteria (Olivier Award for Best Comedy), Piano/Forte, Hitchcock Blonde, The Graduate (West End and Broadway), Mrs. Henderson Presents (West End and Toronto), Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick (Olivier Award for Best Comedy), and The London Cuckolds.
