Cloaca for Spacey's first season at Old Vic



Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THE FIRST production of Kevin Spacey's Old Vic Theatre Company, is to be Cloaca, from Dutch author, Maria Goos.

Although already a huge hit in her native Holland, Cloaca will receive its British premiere at the Old Vic on September 28, 2004, with previews from September 16.

For Pieter, bored with his job in the civil service, his paintings are a source of comfort. Until, that is, the prospect of losing them is threatened by a single phone call.

In desperation, he turns to old friends for help - to Joep, who puts his political career before his marriage; to Tom, his career as a lawyer in tatters after a downward spiral into drug abuse, self harm and a nervous breakdown; and finally, to Maarten, an unconventional theatre director whose career, likewise, has seen better days.

The cast will include Neil Pearson, who is perhaps, best known for his TV roles in Drop the Dead Donkey and Between the Lines.

He is, though, no stranger to theatre, having appeared in Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing and Closer. And his films include Bridget Jones Diary and Fever Pitch.

Joining Pearson, will be Hugh Bonneville with Daniel Deronda, The Cazalets and Stage Beauty in which he played Samuel Pepys, among his TV credits.

Stephen Tompkinson who also appeared in Drop the Dead Donkey as well as the extremely popular, Ballykissangel, will also star.
