Sharon Maughan to star in AUTOBAHN at King's Head
Neil Labute's Autobahn, which opens at the King's Head this month, will star Sharon Maughan, probably most famous for her work in the iconic Nescafe Coffee ads with Anthony Head, as well as for her three year stint on Holby City.
Joining her will be Henry Everett, who was a member of the company for Michael Grandage's year-long season at the Noel Coward Theatre and played alongside David Walliams and Sheridan Smith in A Midsummer Night's Dream, as well as understudying in The Cripple of Inishmaan (starring Daniel Radcliffe) and Peter and Alice (starring Ben Whishaw and Judi Dench).
Alongside them, artistic director of Savio(u)r Zoe? Swenson-Graham will also star, as will Tom Slatter (5 Kilo Sugar (Brighton Festival/Tristan Bates Theatre) and 1984 (National Tour)).
Regarded as one of the most celebrated American playwrights, Neil LaBute has enthralled audiences all over the world with his layered characters, sharp dialogue and subtle social commentaries. Now, in a London premiere, acclaimed American theatre company Savio(u)r will present his play Autobahn, directed by Off-West End Award nominee Tim Sullivan.
This short-play cycle follows colourful, complicated people making their way across America's highways and their stops, starts, and stalls along the way in seven one-act plays, utilising LaBute's flair for the dark and sinister as exemplified by his classics The Shape of Things and Bash.
