"The Queen is not into sweat."
From March 13th - 17th, I'm appearing as Michael Watters in an amateur production of Frank McGuinness's three-hander Someone Who'll Watch Over Me at the Old Sorting Office Theatre in Barnes. The play revolves around an Englishman, Irishman and American chained to a wall in Beirut. They don't know each other, they don't like each other, and each of them is coming to the terms with both crushing boredom, and the fact that they could be taken out and shot at any moment by their unseen captors. It's harrowing, intense... and absolutely hilarious.
Tickets are available from www.barnescharityplayers.com now, and as this is an OSO show it will sell out (only 70 seats or so for each performance). I'd love as many of my friends as possible to come and see this one. It's the biggest and scariest part I've ever had, and a rare chance for me to play a psychologically 'real' character, as opposed to a comic cipher. If you never come and see me in anything else, please do consider supporting this show.
I really hope to see you there.
