Georgie Henley to Make Professional Stage Debut
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.”
