Theatre company Double Telling, led by Director Marlie Haco, have announced the full cast for their new production of Good Day, playing at VAULT Festival in March 2023. Haco directs Annie Davison (Zara), Olivia Barrowclough (Alex) and Sam Newton (Joe).

Written by Daniel Bainbridge and Cam Scriven, Good Day is a darkly comic exploration of what it means to be human when mortality is removed, and thoughts and emotions can be mimicked by AI. Good Day opens at Network Theatre in London Waterloo on 8 March 2023, with previews from 7 March, and runs until 12 March.

Zara lives in a perfect world. No poverty, no war. She's even been implanted with an electronic chip that will extend her life forever. So, why does she want to end it all?

To be allowed to die, Zara must debate her fate with an android therapist and overcome the human drive to survive. Good Day is a dark comedy that explores how we find meaning in our lives and asks whether immortality is really all it's cracked up to be.

Annie Davison plays Zara. Davison graduated from Drama Centre London in 2022. Since then, she has completed a run of Anything with a Pulse at the Park Theatre. During her time at Drama Centre, she was nominated for both the BAFTA Scholarship and Hobson's Prize for Radio. Davison won the Spotlight Award at the National Student Drama Festival for her role as Rebecca in Steph Smith's Swallow.
