Lisa Dillon leads Tom Stoppard Hapgood revival at Hampstead

HAPGOOD

Lisa Dillon and Gerald Kyd lead the cast for Howard Davies’revival of Tom Stoppard’s spy thriller, Hapgood, at Hampstead Theatre this December.

“I can’t remember which side I’m supposed to be working for, and it is not in fact necessary for me to know…”

It is London 1988. The Cold War is approaching its endgame and somebody in spymaster Elizabeth Hapgood’s network is leaking secrets. Is her star Double Agent a Triple?

The trap she sets becomes a hall of mirrors in which betrayal is personal and treachery a trick of the light.

Lisa Dillon takes the title role. Also in the cast is Gary Beadle, Joe Evans, Edward Hancock, Gerald Kyd, Tim McMullan and Alec Newman. Child actors Adam Cansfield and Sasha Gray complete the cast.

Dillon trained at RADA and her theatre credits include The Roaring Girl, The Taming Of The Shrew, Othello (RSC), Hedda Gabler (Almeida), Under The Blue Sky, Private Lives (West End), Present Laughter, The Hour We Knew Nothing Of Each Other (National Theatre) and The Master Builder (West End).

Hapgood runs at the Hampstead Theatre from December 4-January 16.
