I spy a new show coming to London! Riverside Studios has announced the world premiere of Spy for Spy, a new play by Kieron Barry starring Olive Gray and Amy Lennox.

Gray is best known for starring in the Paramount+ series Halo, the Sky Atlantic series Save Me Too, and BBC-1's Dark Money. Lennox is known for starring as Sally Bowles in Cabaret at the Playhouse Theatre in the West End. She also earned a Best Supporting Actress Olivier Award nomination for playing Lauren in Kinky Boots.

In Spy for Spy, Gray and Lennox play Sarah and Molly, an uptight lawyer and free-spirited dreamer who fall in love despite their differences. The show's scenes — in which the couple fall in love, meet the parents, break up, and more — will be performed in a different order each night, exploring whether love and life make more sense out of order.

Audiences will get to interact with the cast and crew before the show, and six audience members will get to pick songs that will play during the show.

The creative team includes director Lucy Jane Atkinson, set designer Bethia Jane Green, lighting designer Holly Ellis, and sound designer Anna Short.

When will Spy for Spy play in London?
