London’s Arts Theatre becomes the home of “A Walk on Part: The Fall of New Labour” from the end of June. It will be a unique show and one that echoes the West End’s “39 Steps” as it will feature a limited number of cast members taking on an array of roles – in this case more than 100 different people.
John Hodgkinson and Tracy Gillman are among the cast members in the production, with additional performers like Joe Caffrey and Hywel Morgan. They will work under the direction of Max Roberts to bring well known political figures to life such as Chris Mullin MP (whose diaries form the basis of the script), Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, George Osborne, Tony Benn and John Prescott, among others.
John Hodgkinson is known to London theatre audiences thanks to roles in the likes of “Oh! What a Lovely War!” at the Regent’s Park’s Open Air Theatre, “Romeo & Juliet” for the RSC and “Absurdia” at the Donmar Warehouse. In addition to television programmes like “Holby City”, he has had a wide-ranging career that has also taken him to the Live Theatre in Newcastle, where “A Walk on Part” previously appeared.
“A Walk on Part: The Fall of New Labour” is at the Arts Theatre from Tuesday 26th June 2012 (previews from Tuesday 19th June 2012) to Saturday 14th July 2012.
