Anna Mackmin's production of David Storey's 1969 drama In Celebration, featuring Orlando Bloom (Pirates of the Carribean) in his West End debut, runs at the Duke of York's Theatre from July 5, with press night on July 12.  The show is currently booking until September 15.

The full cast is Lynda Baron (Mrs. Burnett), Orlando Bloom (Steven), Gareth Farr (Colin), Tim Healy (Mr. Shaw), Paul Hilton (Andrew), Ciaran McIntyre (Reardon) and Dearbhla Molloy (Mrs. Shaw).  It will be produced in the West End by Sonia Friedman Productions.

In Celebration is David Storey's "modern classic took audiences by storm at the Royal Court in the 1960's and established him as one of the country's most powerful playwrights.  Three brothers - Andrew, Colin and Steven - return home to the northern roots of their childhood for a family reunion. Although they have returned to celebrate, the explosive complexities of family life and long-held grievances are unlikely to improve the chances of a decent party…  Compelling and emotionally thrilling, In Celebration is an exploration of family love and of how the consequences of best intentions can threaten to destroy treasured hopes and dreams," state press materials.

In Celebration received its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in 1969 and subsequently Lindsay Anderson directed a film version with a cast including Alan Bates.
