Mel Giedroyc to star in ‘Money’ streaming at Southwark Playhouse
The production is part of represent.’s inaugural repertory season.
Isla van Tricht’s Money will be presented in a co-production between new company represent. And Southwark Playhouse. Mel Giedroyc makes a cameo appearance in the digital production, available to watch online from 26 April - 15 May.
Creative director of represent. Guy Woolf said: “We commissioned Isla van Tricht to write the piece for a virtual and interactive production in which our audiences are put right at the heart of a timely ethical dilemma that confronts capitalism, philanthropy and a group of people doing their best.”
Money will ask its audiences to interact with cast members, determining how much money a charity should accept from questionable sources.
Mel Giedroyc will play the charity CEO Jennifer Aners, previously starring in West End shows including Company and The Rocky Horror Show. Giedroyc is joined by Aaron Douglas, Sarel Madziya, Nemide May, Loussin-Torah Pilikian and Adam Rachid Lazaar.
The company’s inaugural season includes the European premiere of Stephen Jeffreys’ Interruptions which is newly adapted for six actors. Isley Lynn’s Albatross will receive its world premiere.
