Charlie's Dark Angel at the Drayton Arms Theatre
Film and theatre critic James Christopher's debut play Charlie's Dark Angel will run at the Drayton Arms Theatre, a pub theatre in South Kensington, from 3 to 28 March 2015.
Presented by The Company of Strangers, the cast for the production includes Kieran Gough, Phoebe Pryce, Joannah Tincey, and Ben Porter.
Described as an "80 minute drama chronicling the destructive relationships between four individuals", the play is an exploration of passion, sexual politics and control.
Set in a sinister farmhouse on the border between Suffolk and North Essex, this psychological drama is partly inspired by the fateful motifs of film noirs. "A disturbing memory resurfaces when Eric and his wife Susan realise an accidental meeting with wealthy playboy, Charlie, and his young Ukrainian girlfriend, Ella, is not as it seems..."
James Christopher is the former chief film critic of The Times, Deputy Theatre Editor at Time Out, and chief theatre critic of the Sunday Express. He is Artistic Director of The Company of Strangers, a brand new venture exploring contemporary theatre noire to terrorise the modern imagination.
