At the PARK Theatre

Miriam’s back: Sydney & The Old Girl full cast announced

Who wins the game of mother and son?

The cast has been announced for the world premiere of Eugene O’Hare’s, Sydney & The Old Girl. O’Hare’s latest acerbic black comedy follows mother and son duo, Nell and Sydney, as ghosts from the past cause tensions to rise and their relationship becomes one of mutually assured destruction. Following Park Theatre’s sell-out hit Madame Rubinstein in 2017Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter) returns to Park Theatre’s stage to play Nell in a rare London stage performance.

As the twisted game between mother and son reaches breaking point, Irish care worker Marion Fee finds herself an unwitting pawn played from both sides.

Joining Miriam Margolyes on stage is Mark Hadfield (The Weatherman) and Vivien Parry (Les Miserables, The Sondheim Theatre).

O’Hare is a ‘fearless new playwright with a singular voice’ WhatsOnStage

After ‘a remarkable debut’ for The Weatherman, O’Hare’s writing coupled with the inimitable Miriam Margolyes makes Sydney & The Old Girl a play not to be missed.

The Weatherman

By Eugene O’Hare
Directed by Alice Hamilton

Must close 14 Sep

‘First-rate theatre’

★★★★★ London Living Large

Nominated for 3 Off West End Awards (including Best Production and Most Promising New Playwright), there are only four more chances to catch Eugene O’Hare’s first play in our 2019 season, The Weatherman

When Beezer and O’Rourke are offered a ‘business’ proposition, they are gifted free rent and an allowance at the expense of their morality.

O’Hare’s dark hit shines a light on complicity, an intriguing web of secrets and sees Alec Newman and Mark Hadfield deliver ‘career best work’ (WhatsOnStage).

Final performances from £18.50
