Produced by the director’s own outfit, The Michael Grandage Company, Grandage and Corrin reunite following their recent collaboration on new Amazon movie My Policeman, also starring Harry Styles, which is released on 21 October 2022.
Orlando will land in the West End in late Autumn.
Michael Grandage said in a press statement: “Neil Bartlett’s joyous new adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando dances through time and gender, challenging us to remember that nothing really matters except the courage to be yourself. It is one of the most surprising stories in the English language, and with its inspiring vision of all bodies having equal rights to love, I’m delighted that MGC is returning to the West End with Emma Corrin to bring this timely story to a whole new audience.”
Emma Corrin returns to the stage to play Orlando, following their Olivier Award nominated performance in Anna X (Harold Pinter Theatre). Their TV credits include Lady Diana Spencer in The Crown – for which they won a Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award. Other forthcoming screen projects include Lady Chatterly’s Lover and limited-series Retreat.
The Michael Grandage Company’s next production is Dawn French is a Huge Tw*t (with Phil McIntyre Entertainment) on tour in the UK this autumn.
