Octagon Theatre Bolton have released rehearsal images for the forthcoming World Premiere of Winter Hill, the new play from internationally acclaimed playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker, author of the Olivier award winning Our Country's Good and most recently Jefferson's Garden.

Check out the cast in rehearsals below!

The production's all-female cast will feature Cathy Tyson (BAFTA and Golden Globe-nominated Mona Lisa; Band of Gold, ITV); Denise Black (Denise Osbourne in Coronation Street and Joanie Wright in Emmerdale, Both ITV; Cucumber and Queer as Folk , Channel 4 and onstage in Pack at the Finborough Theatre and as Mother Superior in the UK tour of Sister Act); Louise Jameson (Doc Martin, ITV; Doctor Who, EastEnders and Bergerac, BBC); Fiona Hampton ( Of Mice and Men, The Glass Menagerie and Private Live, Octagon Theatre Bolton); Janet Henfrey (Wolf Hall, The Singing Detective and as Mrs Bale in As Time Goes By (all BBC) ; Souad Faress (Linda in Brief Encounters, ITV and Bridget Jones Diary, Bhaji on the Beach and My Beautiful Laundrette), Eva-Jane Willis (Magnificence, Finborough Theatre And We Really Should Do Something, Bush Theatre) and Susan Twist (Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Octagon Theatre Bolton).

Timberlake Wertenbaker's new play explores how a group of seemingly ordinary women endeavour to protect their local community, no matter the cost and questioning the lengths people go to for a cause they believe in and at what point does the fight for freedom become terrorism?

The production will be directed by Octagon Theatre's Artistic Director Elizabeth Newman.

Winter Hill will be playing at the Octagon Theatre Bolton between Thu 11 May - Sat 3 June
