Got word yesterday that Whistleblower, the play I’m developing with the Manchester Royal Exchange, has now been cast. The play is a two-hander and the Exchange have given us - that is, me and the director Lucy Kerbel - a week in the Studio working with actors on a first draft, culminating in a public showing on the Friday. The two actors are Joe Ransom and Diane Peck. Both very exciting up-and-coming actors and I’m really excited to start working with them. Better get back to writing it.
