Soon On Stage Twice

Over the holiday weekend, I learned that I booked two gigs that I had recently auditioned for. I am happy to report:

In June/July I will be playing the part of Russell in
Modern Dance For Beginners
by Sarah Phelps
with Cake Productions at the Cherry Lane Studio Theatre.
This play premiered at London's Soho Playhouse in 2002.

Owen consummates his marriage but not with the bride. Julia's handyman won't do the job he's paid for. Russell might be the grandmaster of the squalid, meaningless one night stand but all he wants to do is hold hands on the London Eye. And Frances, Frances isn't looking for commitment. Not now, not ever.

A series of encounters linked by a liaison in a hotel bedroom, Modern Dance for Beginners is a cruelly comic play about love and sex.

'Sarah Phelps's marvellous [play].... a shocking take on La Ronde. This is a play for today, and well worth catching while you can'
Metro ****

'Foul tempered, acid tongued and dripping in bodily fluids... sexy, snappy, sharp witted, dynamic and aggressive'
The Times

'Phelps certainly has a gift for sharp, fast dialogue'
The Guardian

'Raw explicit talk and personal tenderness. Highly recommended.'
Independent on Sunday

- and -

In September/October I will be playing Les in
Eye of God
by Tim Blake Nelson
with Theatre East at the Kirk Theatre on Theatre Row
This play premiered at Seattle Repertory Theatre in 1992.
