Bloom debuts on London stage
Orlando Bloom makes his West End stage debut this summer in David Storey’s In Celebration at the Duke of York’s from 5 July (press night 12 July). Lynda Baron, Gareth Farr, Paul Hilton and Ciaran McIntyre also star.
Anna Mackmin directs Storey’s 1969 drama, which centres around three brothers – Andrew (Hilton), Colin (Farr) and Steven (Bloom), who return home to the northern roots of their childhood for a family reunion. Although they have returned to celebrate, the explosive complexities of family life and long-held grievances are unlikely to improve the chances of a decent party. Storey’s drama is an exploration of family love and how the consequences of best intentions can threaten to destroy treasured hopes and dreams.
