Aspidistra Resistance – Casting Announcement

Joanna Ostrowska, director of our  new writing competition winning Aspidistra Resistance by Polly Churchill announces her cast:

“I feel honoured to be directing my first play for South London Theatre and in addition a play that had won the SLT playwriting competition and so has never been performed before.

Auditions were held over a few weeks and many very talented people come through the doors of the theatre. A huge thank to Jess Osorio for helping me with the whole selection process.

It’s been a long time coming but I can truly say we have found the most perfect cast any director can only dream of. I am now really excited to begin rehearsals and work with this cast alongside Lisa Thomas to bring Aspidistra Resistance from the page onto the stage. “
