News: Cast Change Announcement For The Most Precious Of Goods

Samantha Spiro has joined the production of The Most Precious of Goods following the withdrawal of Allan Corduner, who is recovering from pneumonia. The producers wish Allan well as he recovers and are delighted that Samantha Spiro, currently appearing in the acclaimed movie One Life and who recently starred in the Netflix hit Sex Education, has been able to step in at short notice.

This stage adaptation, of the best-selling Novella, will be directed and translated by Nicolas Kent and opens at the Marylebone Theatre on 22 January 2024, to coincide with National Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January. Told with a fairy tale-like lyricism, this gripping story of love and hope, set against the terrible backdrop of the Holocaust, reminds us that humanity can be found in the most inhumane of places.

Question and answer sessions will take place after weekday student matinees and will include an array of prestigious guest speakers. Hosted by Martin Spafford (Honorary fellow of the Historical Association), guest speakers include renowned playwright Martin Sherman, Gillian Walnes Perry M.B.E author of The Legacy of Anne Frank, Francesca Simon M.B.E author of the Horrid Henry series of books, and Rabbi Baroness Julia Neuberger D.B.E.

On Holocaust Day (Saturday 27 January) film, television and stage actress, Dame Maureen Lipman and barrister and television personality Robert Rinder M.B.E will be part of a post-performance discussion panel at 4.40 pm.
