Boa at Trafalgar Studios 2 starring Harriet Walter
Moya Productions have announced that a production of Clara Brennan's new play Boa will run at the Trafalgar Studios 2 in London's West End from 5 February to 7 March 2015, with an official opening on 9 February 2015.
The two hander will star Dame Harriet Walter performing alongside her husband, American actor Guy Paul, for the first time on the London stage.
Running for a limited five weeks, the play is described as "an acerbic, warm and honest account of a lifetime in love that tells the tender, powerful story of Louis, Belinda and their 30 years of overwhelming affection, wine, words and dance."
The production will be directed by Hannah Price, the Co-Artistic Director and Founder of Theatre Uncut.
Dame Harriet Walter recently starred in Phyllida Lloyd's all-female production of 'Henry IV' at the Donmar Warehouse. Her previous stage credits include the role of Brutus in Lloyd's 'Julius Caesar' at the Donmar and in New York. She is an associate artist of the Royal Shakespeare Company and recently played Cleopatra in 'Antony and Cleopatra' alongside Patrick Stewart as well as Beatrice in 'Much Ado About Nothing' and Lady Macbeth opposite Anthony Sher, all directed by Gregory Doran.
Guy Paul is known primarily for his work on Broadway, having appeared in 'Mary Stuart' alongside Harriet Walter, as well as 'Twelve Angry Men', 'King Lear', 'The Invention of Love', '1776' and 'The King and I'. His Off-Broadway credits include 'Frankenstein' at CSC and 'Stuff Happens' at the Public Theatre.
