Cast announced for The Inquiry at Chichester Festival Theatre

Casting has been announced for the world premiere of The Inquiry at Chichester Festival Theatre.

The debut play from investigative reporter Harry Davies will run at the venue’s Minerva Theatre from 13 October – 11 November 202.3.

Deborah Findlay, John Heffernan and Malcolm Sinclair lead the company, alongside Shazia Nicholls, Macy Nyman, Nicholas Rowe and Stephanie Street, directed by Joanna Bowman.

The Inquiry is a gripping drama about the pernicious collision between politics, justice and ambition.

MP Arthur Gill is one of Westminster’s rising stars. Still in his 30s, he’s just become the Secretary of State for Justice, assuming the role of Lord Chancellor too; and with a leadership race on the horizon, he’s a favourite to be the next Prime Minister.

But there’s a problem. An inquiry headed by Lady Justice Deborah Wingate is on the brink of publishing its findings about a public health disaster: a scandal that happened on Gill’s watch when he was environment minister. As leaks multiply and the waters grow murkier, how far will he go to hide his past and protect his future?

The Inquiry will be designed by Max Jones, with lighting by Mark Henderson, sound by Christopher Shutt, movement by Yarit Dor and casting by Charlotte Sutton CDG.
