Seline Hizli in Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown at the Playhouse Theatre
Joining Tamsin Greig, Willemijn Verkaik, Sarah Moyle and More in the Upcoming Production in the West End
Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown is drawing ever closer at the Playhouse Theatre, with previews set to begin next month, and as a result we have been hearing a lot more from the production, with regular casting announcements. Last month, Willemijn Verkaik and Sarah Moyle were added to the line-up and now Seline Hizli has been announced for a role.
Hizli joins a cast that already includes the well known comic actor Tamsin Greig, best known for shows like Green Wing, Black Books and Episodes, and will take on the part of Marisa.
Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown is a stage musical version of the well known Pedro Almodóvar film from the late 1980s. It tells the story of Pepa (Greig), a woman living in Spain who has recently discovered that her lover has dumped her. As such, we follow Pepa and her friends during a highly eventful two days. She wishes to find out why her lover left her and her journey to discover the truth means she crosses path with the man’s wife and children, plus the latest lover to enter his life.
Seline Hizli has appeared in various British television shows, ranging from Land Girls to Appropriate Adult, plus the likes of Call The Midwife, Casualty, Law & Order: UK. However, her career has also brought her to the attention of UK and London theatre audiences, in front of whom she has appeared in the likes of The Republic Of Happiness at the Royal Court Theatre, House Of Bernarda Alba at the Almedia Theatre, One Night In November for the Belgrade Theatre Company and Jumpy at the Royal Court (with Tamsin Greig).
The production is an anticipated one and marks the latest film to be given the West End treatment, with others including Billy Elliot The Musical and the recently announced Bend It Like Beckham The Musical, which opens next year.
Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown, meanwhile, opens at the Playhouse Theatre on Monday 12th January 2015 (with previews from Thursday 18th December 2014).
