Denise Van Outen to star in ‘Some Girl I Used To Know’ revival
The one-woman play was at the Arts Theatre in 2014.
A filmed revival of Some Girl I Used To Know starring Denise Van Outen will stream over the Easter weekend. Van Outen will reprise her West End performance for the screen, directed by friend and fellow West End actress Tamzin Outhwaite.
The one-woman play follows Stephanie, a lingerie designer from Essex who seems to have it all. A husband, a good job and wealth isn't everything though, especially when her childhood sweetheart texts her out of the blue. During the monologue, Stephanie must decide which path to take and face the consequences.
Some Girl I Used To Know is co-written by Van Outen and Terry Ronald, with music by Steve Anderson. Ahead of the stream, Van Outen said: "To be back performing this play is a dream come true. I almost never imagined it would happen again but right now with everything we are all going through it felt like time to do something special for people."
Van Outen is a West End actress and television presenter, whose theatre credits include Chicago, Tell Me On A Sunday and Legally Blonde. Recently, she's been on television shows including The Circle and Dancing On Ice. In 2014, she starred in Some Girl I Used To Know, which ran for one month at the Arts Theatre.
Proceeds from Some Girl I Used To Know will be donated to the Make a Difference Trust, raising funds for theatre professionals.
