The actress spoke to Love London Love Culture about her own quizzing ability and being part of James Graham’s Quiz at the Noel Coward Theatre (31 March to 16 June 2018).
Hi Sarah, how are you feeling about being part of Quiz’s West End run?
It’s great to be back with the cast I know and love. I’m excited that the play will be seen by a wider audience.
How would you describe the show for those who haven’t seen it?
Fast, fun, and it raises important questions about media manipulation. At its heart, it is a human story.
Could you tell me a bit more about your character Sonia?
Sonia Woodley is a real life barrister who defended Charles Ingram. In this interpretation Sonia is far more forceful.
If you had to pick one quiz show to appear on which would it be and why?
The Chase, because I love Bradley (Walsh).
How good are you at doing quizzes?
What can audiences coming along to Noel Coward Theatre expect from the production?
A behind the scenes look at Who Wants to be a Millionaire interspersed with a real court case. A chance to be part of a game show, a pub quiz. Interactive voting. You will definitely leave the theatre buzzing – ‘Did they do it?!’
What would you say the reason Quiz has proved so popular with audiences so far?
All the above.
