Making up the full cast are Matt Ray Brown (Exeter/Orleans), Alicia Charles (Bardolph/Williams), Elin Phillips (Fluellen), Lauren Samuels (Katherine/Boy), Aaron Sidwell (Henry), Adam Sopp (Pistol/Constable), Sarah Waddell (Queen of France) and Jonathan Woolf (Nym/Dauphin).
It comes as The Barn Theatre launches a Save Our Barn fundraising campaign following the closure of theatres across the UK as a result of coronavirus.
They said: “With great sadness we have taken the difficult decision today to temporarily close the theatre because of government guidelines, and what the Prime Minister advised yesterday. We are now in a position where we need your help. As an unsubsidised charity, we rely solely on donations and ticket revenue which has now come to a halt. This loss of revenue is a hammer blow to us.
“Our acclaimed Built by Barn production of Ben Hur, along with all other productions, will therefore be postponed with immediate effect. It is estimated that we will lose upwards of £250,000 over the coming months which could ultimately close the theatre on a permanent basis. Our future is now dependent on our supporters and as such we are launching a donations campaign, working together with our community to SAVE OUR BARN.”
