Cast announced for Jermyn Street Theatre's Rain and Zoe Save the World

Jermyn Street Theatre has announced the cast for the second production of its Outsiders Season, the world premiere of award-winning playwright Crystal Skillman’s Rain and Zoe Save the World.

The ecological adventure will feature Jordan Benjamin (Hairspray – London Coliseum) as Rain and Mei Henri (The Birth of Daniel F Harris – Channel 4) as Zoe, with Richard Holt (A Christmas Carol – Antic Disposition, Swallows and Amazons – Bristol Old Vic /NT) and Salma Shaw (Bars and Measures – Off Broadway, That Damn Michael Che – HBO Max) playing various roles.

Directed by NYC based theatre and filmmaker Hersh Ellis, with music by multi-award-winning composer Bobby Cronin, Rain and Zoe Save the World tells the story of two teenage climate activists from Washington State who embark on an impulsive motorcycle journey to join a group of oil protesters on the East Coast. On the way, Rain and Zoe discover that the true danger in this world... might just be growing up.

A co-production with US based Drew & Dane Productions, Rain and Zoe Save the World takes to the road this February for a journey that explores the ethics of standing up for what you believe whatever the cost. 

Speaking about the announcement Tom Littler, Jermyn Street Theatre Artistic Director, said "we are delighted to present the world premiere of this remarkable and timely play. With climate change an increasingly present reality, Rain and Zoe Save the World is a play that addresses world issues through personal experience. It's an adventure story that has captured the hearts and minds of our whole team."
