Photo Flash: First Look at REGENERATION UK Tour, Starring Tim Delap & Stephen Boxer
Pat Barker's Booker-nominated novel, Regeneration, has been adapted for the stage by Olivier Award-winning playwright Nicholas Wright (His Dark Materials, Vincent in Brixton), opening at Royal & Derngate, Northampton from 29 August to 20 September, with press night on 2 September, prior to a national tour.
Regeneration is a co-production between the Touring Consortium Theatre Company and leading regional producing theatre, Royal & Derngate Northampton. The production is directed by Simon Godwin, with design by Alex Eales, lighting design by Lee Curran, music by Stuart Earl, sound by George Dennis, and movement by Struan Leslie.
The full cast are Stephen Boxer (Captain Rivers), Christopher Brandon (Robert Graves), Simon Coates (Yealland/Anderson), Tim Delap (Siegfried Sassoon), Joshua Higgott (Campbell), David Morley Hale (Callan), Jack Monaghan (Billy Prior), Garmon Rhys (Wilfred Owen) and Lindy Whiteford (Sister Rogers).
Marking the centenary of the start of the First World War, Regeneration is a compellingly compassionate look at war and the devastating after effect it had on a generation of young men. The play examines the insanity of war with shocking clarity; a powerful anthem for the youth of the First World War and the lives of young soldiers today.
