    Alfie Allen, Katie Brayben and Annapurna Sriram will join the previously announced Jesse Eisenberg and Kunal Nayyar in The Spoils at Trafalgar Studios.

    Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy in Game of Thrones, will make his West End stage debut. Allen previously played the lead role in the national UK tour of Equus. His screen credits include the films Pandemic, John Wick, Plastic, The Body, Confine, Powder, Freestyle, Soulboy, The Other Boleyn Girl, Atonement, Stoned, Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London; and on television, Close To The Enemy, Accused, Moving On, Freefall, Casualty 1907, Coming Up, Joe's Place, Jericho and The Golden Hour.

    Katie Brayben originated the role of Carole King in the London production of Beautiful, for which she was named Best Actress in a Musical at the 2015 Olivier Awards. Currently appearing in My Mother Said I Never Should at the St James Theatre until 21 May 2016, Brayben's theatre credits include King Charles III (Almeida & Wyndham’s Theatres), American Psycho (Almeida), Ragtime The Musical, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre), 13 (National Theatre), Friday 4pm (Arcola Theatre), Company (Southwark Playhouse), and Mamma Mia! (Ten year anniversary cast, International Tour and West End).

    Completing the line-up is American actress Annapurna Sriram, who appeared in the original off-Broadway production of The Spoils alongside Eisenberg and Nayyar. She's appeared on the television programmes The Path (Hulu), Billions (Showtime) and South of Hell (WE-TV).

    A razor-sharp new comedy written by and starring international film-star Eisenberg, The Spoils is a cuttingly satirical glimpse of a lost soul searching to assent the reality of his situation. This London premiere follows its New York debut hailed as ‘A Triumph’ (New York Post), ‘Engrossingly acted and impeccably staged’ (New York Times), and was named Critic’s Choice by both The New York Times and Time Out New York.

    The Spoils is begins previews at Trafalgar Studios on Friday 27 May, running until Saturday 13 August.
