Booking now open for "Hitchcock Blonde" at Lyric Theatre

Booking has now opened for Terry Johnson's new play Hitchcock Blonde, which opens at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue on 25 June 03, following previews from 16 June 03, and booking to 20 Sep 03.

This production originally opened at the Royal Court last month for a limited run which ended Sat 24 May 03.

The original Royal Court cast will transfer with the show: Rosamund Pike (Blonde) , Fiona Glascott (Nicola), David Haig (Alex), William Hootkins (Hitch), Owen McDonnell (Husband)

The play opened to terrific notices for its Royal Court run last month: THE STAGE says, "The plotting is often puzzling but there is plenty of entertainment among the thrills" THE GUARDIAN says, "It pleasurably combines Hitchcock's eerie romanticism with a study in erotic obsession." DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "It's ambitious, ingenious and intriguing." THE TIMES says, "Prepare yourself for plenty of educated fun." TIME OUT says, "Dazzlingly clever and often wonderfully funny."

It is directed by Terry Johnson, designed by William Dudley, with lighting by Simon Corder.

A media lecturer and his female protege find some deteriorated Hitchcock footage in the basement of aSpanish villa. It would appear they had discovered some early rushes but what film were they for and who is the mysterious blonde?

Looking for the best seats...
