Scottish actress Olivia Darnley is to play the role of Charley in A Single Man at the Park Theatre in North London.
She replaces Rachel Pickup (Wonder Woman) who was originally named in the role but has withdrawn following a conflict with filming.
Olivia joins Theo Fraser Steele, soon to appear as Timothy Laurence in Series 5 of The Crown, as George, Miles Molan as Kenny/Jim, Freddie Gaminara as Male Paramedic/Mr Strunk/Alex/Nurse/Bartender, and Phoebe Pryce as Female Paramedic/Mrs Strunk/Maria/Doris.
Based on the much-loved book by Christopher Isherwood, which was turned into an acclaimed movie by Tom Ford starring Colin Firth, this new stage production of A Single Man is adapted by Simon Reade and directed by Philip Wilson.
Joining Philip Wilson in the creative team are Movement Director Natasha Harrison, Set And Costume Designer Caitlin Abbott, Lighting Designer Peter Harrison, and Sound Designer And Composer Beth Duke.
Billed as powerful and sexy, A Single Man is a darkly amusing study of grief, love and loneliness from celebrated writer Christopher Isherwood – the author of Goodbye to Berlin, the inspiration for Cabaret.
A Single Man is booking from 19 October 2022 until 26 November 2022 at the Park Theatre, London.
