McKee replaces Fitzgerald in Pinter's double bill

Due to a serious bronchial infection, Tara Fitzgerald will no longer be performing in the forthcoming production of the double bill of Harold Pinter's plays The Lover & The Collection, which opens at the Comedy Theatre 29 Jan 2008, following previews from 15 Jan 2008 - booking to 3 May 2008.

She is replaced by Gina McKee, whose London stage credits include "Aristocrats" at the Lyttelton, NT in 2005 & "Old Times" at the Donmar Warehouse in 2004. Her TV credits include "Our Friends From The North" and "The Forsyte Saga".

THE LOVER will now star Gina McKee (Sarah), Richard Coyle (Richard); and THE COLLECTION will now star Richard Coyle (James), Gina McKee (Stella) , Charlie Cox (Bill), Timothy West (Harry).

It is directed by Jamie Lloyd, designed by Soutra Gilmour, lighting by Jon Clark, sound by Ben and Max Ringham, and produced by Ambassador Theatre Group / Tulchin/Bartner Sweet Pea Productions.

THE LOVER: Behind closed suburban doors, a couple’s darkest desires are unlocked, unzipped and undressed. The Lover stars Tara Fitzgerald as Sarah and Richard Coyle as Richard.

THE COLLECTION: is an explosive comedy laced with danger and adultery. Two couples fall victim to suspicion and jealousy when their sexual power games stifle the truth of one lost night in a hotel room in Leeds.
