Has Evanna Lynch heard the news? As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, this Wednesday 7 August 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will quiz her and her Games for Lovers co-stars and creatives. Got any questions?
I had such fun talking to director Anthony Banks at The Girl on The Train, that we decided to squeeze in a quick-turnaround post-show Q&A for his other current London production Games for Lovers… my third event for producer James Seabright’s mini-residency this summer at The Vaults.
In Ryan Craig‘s brand-new comedy, four millennials looking for sex, love and a well-located flat find themselves caught in a complex game of rivalry, desire and seduction.
As the cost of happiness soars, how can they negotiate the new rules of modern relationships and win the game of love? Join them at the heart of the action as their games play out in a bespoke pop-up venue within The Vaults complex under Waterloo station. (Do you dare book the special love seats?!)
The brilliant cast is Calum Callaghan (Black Mirror, Mr Selfridge), Evanna Lynch (Disco Pigs in the West End, Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films), Tessie Orange-Turner (Masterpieces at the Finborough, Casualty) and Billy Postlethwaite (Chernobyl on Sky Atlantic, The Madness of George III at Nottingham Playhouse).
Author Ryan Craig‘s previous plays include Filthy Business at Hampstead Theatre and The Holy Rosenbergs at the National Theatre. The world premiere of Games for Lovers is directed by Anthony Banks, whose recent credits include Hogarth’s Progress at Rose Kingston and the stage adaptation of Paula Hawkins‘ international hit thriller The Girl on the Train, now in the West End with Samantha Womack and Alex Ferns.
