Cast announced for An Adventure at Bolton Octagon

A cast of four has been announced for Vinay Patel’s An Adventure which opens the 2022 spring season at Bolton Octagon from Friday 4th to Saturday 26th February.

It’s a work spanning seven decades and three continents following the journey of a husband and wife as they leave India in the 1950s in search of a better, more exciting future.

The husband and wife, Rasik and Jyoti, will be played by Esh Alladi and Saba Shiraz who is making her professional debut. The story is by award-winning writer Vinay Patel, whose writing credits include Doctor Who and Murdered By My Father.

They’re joined by Manchester actor Daon Broni as David and Jessica Kaur will also make her professional stage debut playing Sonal and Joy.

The production will be directed by Kash Arshad and designed by 2019 Linbury Prize winner TK Hay.

 “Having the chance to work on a play that deals with so much of the history of the South Asian community in this country, as well as that of my own family is one I’m really relishing,” says Kash Arshad.

“I’m so excited to get started working with Vinay’s script, which is so compelling, heartfelt and truthful. We have an amazing group of actors lined up, as well as a stellar creative team who I can’t wait to work with to bring this epic, intimate, funny and heartbreakingly beautiful play to life.”
