Seán Gleeson, Richard Mylan and Sion Daniel Young will play the three roles in Gary Owen’s new play Killology, a co-production between the Royal Court Theatre London and Sherman Theatre, Cardiff.

In 2015 Gary Owen’s Iphigenia in Splott won the UK Theatre Award for Best New Play. Following its run at Sherman Cymru theatre it transferred to the National Theatre.

Director Rachel O’Riordan said: “I am delighted to be partnering with the powerhouse Royal Court theatre on Killology, and to be part of this extraordinary season of new work. Getting brilliant actors and a brilliant writer together is a powerful mix; and this team features some of our most exciting talent. ‘”

Playwright Gary Owen added: “Since taking over at the Royal Court Vicky has worked hard to bring new voices to its stages.  So it's entirely unsurprising that the Royal Court's first co-production with a Welsh theatre should happen under her reign.  We've got a fantastic gang of actors, and I can't wait to see what Rachel's going to do with them.” 

Killology plays at The Royal Court from 25 May until 24 June.
