Direct from Broadway and prior to London, the 2019 European Premiere of Meghan Kennedy’s 'Napoli Brooklyn' opens for a run at Malvern Theatres on May 1.

Starring Georgia May Foote (Coronation Street, Grange Hill), Hannah Bristow (Jane Eyre, National Theatre); Mona Goodwin (Black Mirror); Gloria Onitiri (Brighton Rock, Hadestown), Stephen Hogan (The Tudors, Primeval), and Robert Cavanah (Emmerdale), the UK tour will then continue to Windsor, Guildford, Eastbourne and Oxford, followed by a limited four-week season at Park Theatre, London.

A spokesman said: "Napoli Brooklyn was originally presented by Roundabout Theatre Company at the Laura Pels Theatre, New York. It is the story of an Italian-American family in 1959. It explores the struggle in immigrant families which is passed down from generation to generation, particularly for women.

"Set in Brooklyn, it's a story of strong women taking risks to define a generation as they are forced to confront their conflicting visions for the future in this gripping, provocative portrait of love in all its danger and beauty."

Georgia May Foote is best known for her television roles as Katy Armstrong in Coronation Street (ITV), Alison Simmons in Grange Hill (Lime Pictures), Holly in Trollied (Sky1), Gemma in This is England ’86 (Channel 4). She was runner up in Strictly Come Dancing in 2015. Her other theatre credits include Breakfast at Tiffany’s (UK Tour).
