Georgie Henley to Make Professional Stage Debut

Posted December 7, 2017 2:26 pm by daughter of the king

According to broadwayworld.com, Georgie Henley will be starring in a new play, Angry by Philip Ridley at the Southwark Playhouse next year. The play is a set of monologues that will be performed by Henley and a male actor whose casting has not yet been announced.

The Southwark Playhouse’s website has a fascinating synopsis:

 A spaceship hurtles towards a black hole. A book-loving couple flee a burning city. A bloodshot eye conjures up kisses and wild animals. Angry is a menacing, magical, and darkly comedic collection of stories that vibrate with the lingering unease of our times.

Jack Silver, the Artistic Director of the producing company Tramp, said that he was expecting Henley to be good, but her auditions “absolutely blew us away”.

“She’s a major acting talent and I think audiences are going to be surprised at just how mature and versatile she is.”

    This is exciting. I think she always had plenty of power,even as a young girl. I hope she won’t always be doing dark material though!

      I agree on hoping she doesn’t keep doing the dark stuff. When I see her in LWW and see how innocent and cute she looks and think of what kind of stuff she’s doing now, it makes me quite sad. The other kids were a bit older, so it doesn’t make me AS sad with them (particularly the older two) doing darker things, but with Georgie it makes me want to cry! And thinking of her "potty mouth bucket" during the filming of LWW, and now she swears very badly on Twitter. Why, Georgie, why?

    Cool! I know the Southwark Playhouse. It is a small, very groovy little venue, just blocks away from where Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre once stood.
