Paul Kaye is part of the ensemble cast for the Royal Court Theatre’s production of Guillermo Calderón’s B which begins later this month.
Translated by William Gregory and directed by Sam Pritchard, B tells the story of Alejandra and Marcela – two revolutionaries who are planting bombs in the middle of the night.
They don’t want violence. They just want to be heard. Prison’s not much of a threat when most of your friends are inside. But José Miguel is from another generation, and he’s committed to change by any means possible.
Exploring what revolutionary violence means to two different generations, B is written on a residency with the International Department at Royal Court Theatre, and is presented as part of International Playwrights: a Genesis Foundation Project.
Joining Kaye in the piece are two actresses with TVO credits in the extensive theatre and television backgrounds: Sarah Niles, who was a regular in Catastrophe and a guest star in Marley’s Ghosts; and Aimee-Ffion Edwards, who was a regular in Loaded and The Detectorists, as well as appearing in Inside No 9. Rounding out the cast is respected theatre actress Danusia Samal.
B is hosted in the Royal Court Theatre’s intimate Jerwood Theatre Downstairs, and ticket prices start at a meagre £12. The play has a brief run on 28th, 29th and 30th September, plus a press night on 2nd October, before returning for further dates between 10th-21st October (except 15th). Tickets are on sale now.
