EastEnders & Coronation Street actress Michelle Collins will star in ‘HOW LOVE IS SPELT‘ at Southwark Playhouse this September.

Chloë Moss’ play tells the story of Peta, a young girl who arrives in London looking for fun, romance and adventure. Collins will play Marion, one of five characters Peta meets who help her reveal something about herself.

Collins recently appeared in the critically acclaimed production of My Dad’s Gap Year at Park Theatre. Her numerous acting credits over the last thirty years include 2000 Acres of Sky, The Illustrated Mum (for which she won an International Emmy Award), Sunburn, Real Women, Doctor Who, Midsummer Murders, Death in Paradise, Miss Marple, Hotel Babylon, and The Dumping Ground.

Also joining the cast are Nigel Boyle (Line of Duty, Peaky Blinders), Benjamin O’Mahony (BBC’s Ripper Street), Yana Penrose (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre), Larner Wallace-Taylor (An Inspector Calls, UK tour), and Duncan Moore (Windows and Caste, Finborough Theatre).

HOW LOVE IS SPELT‘ is directed by Charlotte Peters (Associate Director War Horse UK Tour and An Inspector Calls West End) and designed by Georgia de Grey.

The production will be the first major revival of Moss’s play since it premiered at the Bush Theatre in 2004.

HOW LOVE IS SPELT runs from 4 September 2019 until 28 September 2019 at Southwark Playhouse, London.
