Young cast join Matt Smith's directorial debut

Filming begins next week on Cargese, a drama in the Sky Arts series Playhouse Presents, which will be the directorial debut of Doctor Who Matt Smith.

Cargese, described by Sky Arts as a "unique piece of poetic realism which mines the tragic seam of adolescent love and loss", will star Submarine star Craig Roberts, Offender star Joe Cole (represented by Troika) and 17 year old Avigail Tlalim (represented by United Agents) who made her TV debut last year in ITV's The Town.

The young cast play a group of disaffected teenagers in south London, with the Carg├Ęse of the title being a village on the west coast of Corsica which is wistfully mentioned by one of the characters.

Written by award-winning playwright Simon Stephens, Cargese will air on Sky Arts 1 on 25 April 2013.
