Dame Judi Dench to star in live election play 'The Vote' with real-life daughter Finty Williams (include rehearsal photos)

Dame (rehearsal photo: Johan Persson) and her real-life daughter Finty Williams are starring together in a new stage play that will be broadcast live on More4. Dench will play a voter who arrives at the station with her daughter, played by Williams.  

Rehearsal images (scroll down below) have been released of Judi Dench, Finty Williams, Mark Gatiss, Catherine Tate and the cast of The Vote at the Donmar Warehouse, which runs until May 7th. James Graham's The Vote - set in a fictional polling station - will make theatrical history when it is shown live on election night, as polls close on May 7 from 8.30pm. Consisting of 50 actors in total, it will also star Catherine Tate, Ripper Street's MyAnna Buring, and EastEnders' Timothy West.

Here's part of The Vote review and cast rehearsal photos via Radio Times...
The Vote starring Judi Dench and Mark Gatiss is fabulously acted and depressingly accurate
Politicians in the real election on 7 May will be hoping that voters clamour to the polls with the same enthusiasm shown by the several thousand people who have applied for tickets to this unique collaboration between London’s Donmar Warehouse and More4.

Real-life mother and daughter Judi Dench and Finty Williams feature as a mother and daughter whose bickering pushes the beleaguered Gatiss even closer to the edge; MyAnna Buring is a voracious journalist who senses a story; Bill Paterson is a gruff caretaker; and there’s a hilarious cameo from Paul Chahidi as an independent candidate fighting plans for a new one-way system.

See The Vote Thursday 7 May at 8.25pm on More4
