The Lyric Hammersmith today announces full casting for Shopping and Fucking. Alex Arnold will be playing Robbie, Ashley McGuire will be playing Brian, David Moorst will be playing Gary, Sam Spruell will be playing Mark, Sophie Wu will be playing Lulu.

Twenty years since its explosive premiere, Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes brings Mark Ravenhill’s provocative first play, Shopping and Fucking back to the stage. With a raw mixture of black humour and bleak philosophy, the play follows three disconnected young adults whose lives have been reduced to a series of transactions in an emotionally shrink wrapped world. A place where Shopping is sexy and Fucking is a job.

‘An omen of the new century’ (Evening Standard), Ravenhill’s play is a prophetic vision of our twenty- first century world. Widely regarded as one of the most influential pieces of contemporary British theatre this rarely staged play is a must see.

The Lyric’s main house will be transformed for this production with part of the audience seated on the stage, creating a bold intimate experience within their Victorian auditorium. Tickets from £15 with all stalls and onstage seating only £25 for all performances.

SHOPPING AND FUCKING plays at the Lyric Hammersmith Friday 07 October – Saturday 05 November 2016 Press Night: Wednesday 12 October 2016
