Background


Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia) will be joined by a male actor (casting to be announced), to perform the series of five gender-neutral monologues on subjects as diverse as refugees, millennial anger, and interstellar travel.


Both actors will learn all five monologues, but who performs each will alternate from night to night.


Widely considered to be one of the greatest living British writers, Philip Ridley's previous plays include The Fastest Clock in the Universe, Radiant Vermin, The Pitchfork Disney, Tender Napalm, Dark Vanilla Jungle, and Mercury Fur, as well as the screenplay for the 1990 film The Krays.


Georgie Henley shot to worldwide fame aged eight when she was cast as the lead, Lucy Pevensie, in the Oscar-winning The Chronicles of Narnia series.


She took time out of acting to study English at Cambridge before returning to star opposite Ella Purnell in indie film 'Access All Areas'.


Angry is her professional stage debut.


Director Max Lindsay makes his London debut with Angry, after having been a resident director at Nuffield Southampton Theatres.


Tramp return to Southwark Playhouse after the success of their Offie-nominated immersive version of Confessional by Tennessee Williams.
