Complete casting has now been announced for Irish Repertory Theatre's upcoming revival of London Assurance, written by Dion Boucicault and directed by Charlotte Moore, which is scheduled to begin previews on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage on December 6, 2019, ahead of an official opening on December 15 and a limited engagement through January 26, 2020.

The cast of London Assurance includes Craig Wesley Divino (as Dazzle), Meg Hennessy (as Pert), Ian Holcomb (as Young Charles Courtly), Elliot Joseph (as Cool), Brian Keane (as Max Harkaway), Colin McPhillamy (as Sir Harcourt Courtly), Rachel Pickup (as Lady Gay Spanker), Caroline Strang (as Grace Harkaway), Evan Zes (as Mark Meddle), and Robert Zukerman (as Adolphus Spanker).

Synopsis: "In London Assurance, a high-spirited farce, the vain and lustful Sir Harcourt Courtley travels to Oak Hall to meet his bride-to-be, the charming young Grace Harkaway, whose hand comes with £15,000 a year. But when the beautiful and vibrant Lady Gay Spanker joins the party, Sir Harcourt becomes too enamored with her to notice that Grace is falling in love with his young son Charles, who has arrived in disguise, pursued by his creditors! A parade of eccentric characters and merry mishaps ensue in this classic comedy of manners."

The creative team behind London Assurance has also been announced and features scenic design by James Noone, costume design by Sara Jean Tosetti, lighting design by Michael Gottlieb, sound design by M. Florian Staab, sound design and original music by Ryan Rumery, and props design by Sven Henry Nelson.
