Griffin Theatre Company has completed casting for its upcoming production of the John Van Druten comedy London Wall, about the romantic travails of the women of an office typing pool. The rarely produced 1931 piece had its first American production just last year, at New York's Mint Theatre Company. Director Robin Witt's staging for Griffin will be the play's Chicago premiere.
Witt, who racked up three Jeff Awards earlier this year for her Griffin unearthing of the 1947 Scottish drama Men Should Weep, will helm a cast led by Rochelle Therrien and Vanessa Greenway. They'll be joined by George Booker, Ed Dzialo, Nick Freed, Ashley Neal, Mary Poole, Amanda Powell and Michael Saguto.
London Wall runs January 9–February 14 at the Den Theatre. Griffin's current production of Samuel D. Hunter's Pocatello continues through Sunday at Signal Ensemble Theatre's space; an additional closing weekend performance has been added at 3pm Saturday.
