The Arts Theatre welcomes Penny Downie to the stage as she stars in a production of Storm In A Flower Vase from writer Anton Burge. Alongside performers such as Sheila Ruskin, Sally George, Carol Royle and Christopher Ravenscroft she will help to tell a story of a woman who worked on some high profile events in the 20th century.
It is one of an array of shows set to hit the venue in coming months, with others including Pajama Men from October to November 2013, Dickens Abridged, which runs at the venue from November 2013 to January 2014. The season then continues into February with Only Our Own from January 2014.
Downie portrays Constance Spry, a highly driven woman whose work is still felt today. She was a floral designer and cookery author who became known around the country thanks to her work, which saw her provide her skills to the coronation of Elizabeth II in 1953. Storm In A Flower Vase will look behind the scenes of her life, attempting to see the complicated world under the surface of a woman whose achievements include the famous dish, Coronation Chicken.
Penny Downie is an Australian actress who has appeared in various television shows in the United Kingdom, from New Tricks to Inspector Morse, among others, in addition to stage productions for the Royal Shakespeare Company like Richard III, The Winter’s Tale and Hamlet, as well as Helen at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
Storm In A Flower Vase is set to run at the West End’s Arts Theatre with a start date of Friday 13th September 2013.
