MyTheatreMates co-founder Terri Paddock hosted a series of three post-show Q&As following packed-out performances of the current run of Philip Ridley’s ANGRY at London’s Southwark Playhouse. Listen to audio podcasts for all three here. The production must finish this Saturday (10 March 2018) – get booking before it’s too late!
Georgie Henley and Tyrone Huntley, directed by Max Lindsay, perform Philip Ridley’s series of six explosive monologues on subjects as diverse as refugees, millennial anger and interstellar travel – with a shared theme of loss of control.
A spaceship hurtles towards a black hole. A book-loving couple flee a burning city. A bloodshot eye conjures up kisses and wild animals. Angry is a menacing, magical, and darkly comedic collection of stories that vibrate with the lingering unease of our times.
Both actors have learned all six monologues, but alternate who starts each night, to create two different versions of the show which subtly challenge our unconscious gender and racial perceptions.
Philip Ridley’s many previous stage works include The Fastest Clock in the Universe, Radiant Vermin, The Pitchfork Disney, Tender Napalm, Dark Vanilla Jungle, Tonight with Donny Stixx and Mercury Fur, as well as the screenplay for the 1990 film The Krays.
ANGRY runs at London’s Southwark Playhouse from 14 February to 10 March 2018, with performances (90 minutes) Mondays to Saturdays at 8pm, Tuesday and Saturday matinees at 3.30pm. Tickets are priced £20, concessions £16. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
Terri chaired two post-show Q&As with Philip Ridley, director Max Lindsay and stars Georgie Henley and Tyrone Huntley, on 21 February and 5 March 2018, covering different topics in each. The third post-show Q&A, which went ahead on 28 February with a hugely enthusiastic audience despite being in the middle of London’s snowmageddon, focused specifically on production team choices and was with director Max Lindsay, designer James Donnelly (how do you create a sunken stage?) and casting director Jane Frisby.
