Nick Moran to Lead ROARING TRADE in London This Autumn


Power, lust and ambition: three worthy topics for a stage vet to tackle in the upcoming run of DR. WHO, SHERLOCK and UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS writer Steve Thompson's ROARING TRADE at London's Park Theatre.

The Daily Mail writes that TWELVE ANGRY MEN's Nick Moran will star in the Ann Pinnington Productions and Stamp Theatre production, running 23 September to 24 October 2015. He will play 'Donny', described as "a pinstriped trading spiv" who is going through a divorce.

Moran told the Mail that when ROARING TRADE first took the stage six years ago, "everybody hated bankers, because they put everyone through so much misery, and there was little to laugh at, or about," but now that time has passed, audiences might get more out of the play's sense of humor.

Also in the cast are Michael McKell, Melissa Aston-Munslow, Timothy George, Melanie Gutteridge and William Nye.

The official description of ROARING TRADE reads, "Canary Wharf. As the curtain comes down on the recession, four wildly different bond traders put their limits to the test. The coarse tactics of top dog, Donny, are challenged when a younger, fresher new arrival fights to stake a claim in the bank. With Jess wrapping clients around her little finger, bright Cambridge grad Spoon has to catch up fast. Struggling to paper over the cracks of a family life in suburbia, seasoned trader PJ lags behind. In glass buildings that never sleep, is there a glass ceiling and what will it take for it to shatter?"

Moran last starred in the West End in 2013's TWELVE ANGRY MEN. Among his other UK stage credits are BLOOD BROTHERS, REAL CLASSY AFFAIR at the Royal Court, FOUR NIGHTS IN KNARESBOROUGH, LOOK BACK IN ANGER, ALFIE and THE COUNTESS.

He is well known for his role in the film LOCK, STOCK, AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS and has also taken the big screen in NEW BLOOD, THE MUSKETEER, HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS and more.
