The full cast has been announced for a new darkly comic drama exploring immigration and family secrets.

New Earth Theatre and Storyhouse, in association with Arcola Theatre, have announced the full cast for the world première production of WORTH, from Chinese Canadian writer, Joanne Lau. 

Inspired by true events, WORTH takes a darkly comic look at family loss and sibling rivalry. Straddling two cultures, this biting new comedy asks the question – where do you put your worth?  

Written by Joanne Lau and directed by Mingyu Lin, Arthur Lee plays Jacob and Jennifer Lim plays Penny. Stephen Hoo plays Ted, Sara Chia-Jewell plays May and Zachary Hing plays Anthony.

“It’s not stealing if it’s from a dead person.”

Hours before their mother’s funeral, the Yeung siblings gather in the family home for the first time in years, only to discover their inheritance is missing. With seemingly only £44 cash to her name and the house due to be repossessed, where has all the money gone? Tensions escalate as they race to find it, uncovering ugly truths and shocking family secrets along the way.

The production opens at Arcola Theatre on 12 April and runs until 29 April, before transferring to Chester’s Storyhouse, playing from 5 to 20 May.
