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 2017, Miriam 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.
