Sadie Frost to Star in Britten in Brooklyn
It has been announced that Sadie Frost will appear as Gypsy Rose Lee in the world premiere of Britten in Brooklyn at the Wilton’s Music Hall.
The bohemian lifestyle of Benjamin Britten, WH Auden, Carson McCullers and Gypsy Rose Lee in the artistic community at 7 Middagh Street starts to unravel as World War II becomes a brutal reality.
Exiled in America for his beliefs and a national disgrace, Benjamin Britten must decide which way his conflicted political ideals lie but the constant parties, doomed affairs and John Dunne, the mysterious stranger, provide an easy distraction.
Written by Zoe Lewis, this world premiere production directed by Oli Rose is a passionate and thought-provoking play.
It will play for a limited 21 performances from the 31st August to the 17th September at Wilton’s Music Hall.
Talking about the production, actress Sadie Frost said: “I am thrilled that the premiere of Zoe’s brilliant play is to be staged in Wilton’s Music Hall. It was always our first choice of venue and the stunningly restored theatre with its beautiful, faded bohemian elegance, will form an integral part of the production.”
Sadie Frost has previously appeared in Zoe Lewis’s one-woman play, Touched, in the West End at Trafalgar Studios.
Director Oli Rose is the artistic director of Rogues’ Gallery. His acclaimed production, Run, recently premiered at the 2016 London Vault Festival.
Further casting and creative team has yet to be confirmed.
