Philip Ridley’s explosive new collection of gender-neutral monologues ANGRY has just received its world premiere at London’s Southwark Playhouse, where it runs until 10 March 2018. What have critics and audiences been saying so far? We’ve rounded up some of our favourite review quotes and Twitter buzz – as well as full production photography – below…
Georgie Henley and Tyrone Huntley, directed by Max Lindsay, perform Philip Ridley’s series of six monologues on subjects as diverse as refugees, millennial anger, and interstellar travel.
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, with two versions of the show, who performs which alternates from night to night. When “She follows Him”, monologues 2, 4, and 6 are performed by the “Her” (and the others by “Him”) and when “He follows Her”, monologues 2, 4, and 6 are performed by “Him” (and the others by “Her”).
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!
