Character portraits aren’t just for Harry Potter. Photographer Darren Bell gained access to the new cast of Buckland Theatre’s revival of Neil LaBute’s Some Girl(s) to snap these beauties.
In the play, directed by Gary Condes, Guy (played by Charles Dorfman) is desperate to clear his conscience before he gets married. So he sets off on a psychological and physical journey across America, to make amends with four old flames: Lindsay (Carolyn Backhouse), Bobbi (Carley Stenson), Tyler (Roxanne Pallett) and Sam (Elly Condron).
I’ll get to quiz the cast about their experiences working on the production in the first of a series of post-show events on 21 July – so, for heaven’s sake, don’t miss that.
Ahead of the production’s run at the Park Theatre, from 14 July to 6 August, the company are also holding a weekly series of free readings, at Henry Wood House in the West End, of other Neil LaBute plays: Reasons to Be Pretty (13 June), The Shape of Things (20 June), Fat Pig (27 June) and This Is How It Goes (4 July).
