Cast revealed for Dirty Great Love Story at Arts Theatre
Felix Scott and Ayesha Antoine have been cast in the upcoming West End production of Dirty Great Love Story at the Arts Theatre. Previews begin on 18th January 2017, before an official opening on 25th January and a limited engagement through to 18th March 2017.
Felix Scott is probably best known for his screen credits, which include the 2010 hit movie "Inception," as well as television series "Wolf Hall," "Holby City," "Doc Martin" and "Missing." Since 2014, he is also the voice of Charlie Thomas in the popular, long-running BBC Radio 4 soap "Tha Archers."
Ayesha Antoine previously appeared in Red Velvet at the Garrick Theatre, 'Big White Fog,' at the Almeida Theatre, and the Theatre Royal Stratford East productions of 'Cinderella,' 'MADBLUD,' and 'Familyman.' Her screen credits include her TV roles of Rachel Baptiste in "Holby City" and Poppy Silver in "Grange Hill."
Presented by Tim Johanson Productions, Dirty Great Love Story is written by Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna and directed by Pia Furtado.
Ms Furtado commented: "It's a particular privilege as a director to revisit a great script. This new production of Dirty Great Love Story is one of those moments for me. I can't wait to get stuck into this total treat of a play with actors as loveable, skilled and funny as Felix and Ayesha! I'm thrilled that we will be bringing this heart-warming, hilarious, emotionally-messy celebration of modern romance to the West End, and in particular the intimate gem that is The Arts."
Synopsis: "Two hopeful, hapless romantics get drunk, get it on and then get the hell away from each other.
In her eyes, he’s a mistake. A mistake who keeps turning up at parties. In his eyes, she’s perfect. He’s short-sighted. An achingly funny romantic catastrophe of good intentions and bad timing that asks, can a one night stand last a lifetime?"
