Eve Myles among All New People at the Duke of York's Theatre
Torchwood Actress Joining Zach Braff’s Comedy in the West End Alongside Susannah Fielding
Back in November it was first revealed that American television star and director Zach Braff would be bringing his new play to the West End following runs in both Glasgow and Manchester. His show, “All New People”, appears at the Duke of York’s Theatre, will feature Braff in the lead role of Charlie and is directed by Peter DuBois, both of whom had previously worked together in the Broadway production “Trust”.
Now two new names have been revealed in relation to the production. First of all, Eve Myles has been cast in the production, whilst Susannah Fielding has also recently been announced.
In “All New People” the focus is on Braff’s character of Charlie, who is a man in his mid-30s who is about to turn 35 and on this Birthday decides to hide out at his friend’s luxury apartment on Long Beach Island – thus allowing him to spend it alone as he feels he has hit rock bottom. But his attempts of a quiet birthday getaway are soon thwarted as it is interrupted by a range of colourful characters – including a fireman and an estate agent – and this leads to a sour atmosphere.
Eve Myles is a Welsh actress who is best known for her role in the television series “Torchwood” alongside John Barrowman. However, she is also known for a wide range of other roles – including Welsh programme “Belonging” – both on the stage and screen. Her credits include “Titus Andronicus” & “The Taming of the Shrew” for the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and “Henry IV Parts I & II” at The National Theatre. Additional screen credits include “Merlin”, “A Bit of Tom Jones” and “Baker Boys”.
Meanwhile, Susannah Fielding has also appeared in various stage shows alongside television appearances, with latter examples including “Doctor Who”, “The Bill” and “Wallander”. Her London theatre credits include “The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other” at the National Theatre and “The Merchant of Venice” for the RSC.
Following “Backbeat”, which continues at the Duke of York’s Theatre until Saturday 18th February 2012, “All New People” arrives at the West End theatre from Wednesday 22nd February 2012 to Saturday 28th April 2012.
