Jenny Seagrove and Martin Shaw reunite onstage in Clifford Odets’s The Country Girl at the Apollo Theatre, following their onscreen roles in Judge John Deed.
The Country Girl is the powerful story of washed-up actor Frank Elgin, a desperate and demanding alcoholic who is offered a comeback chance to star in the next Broadway play by hotshot director Bernie Dodd. Believing the actor’s long-suffering wife Georgie is the reason for his decline, Bernie strikes up a stormy relationship with her – but in 1950s New York how far will a woman go to redeem the man she loves?
The play is directed by Rufus Norris (Festen, Cabaret).
