Was Sonia Brownell the inspiration for the character of Julia in 1984? What happened to her before and after she met and married George Orwell? Was she a gold digger or a tragic figure?
Tony Cox’s play Mrs Orwell did sufficiently good business in its run at the Old Red Lion last month that it has quickly transferred south of the river, to the Southwark Playhouse for an additional few weeks. Based on actual events but with a fair measure of artistic license thrown in, as with all the best stories, it sheds light on the final weeks of George Orwell’s life.
With its starry casting and avalanche of starry reviews, is it any wonder that Mrs Orwell has secured an immediate transfer to Southwark Playhouse after its just-finished sell-out world premiere season at the Old Red Lion? We think not!
Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will talk to the writer and director of MRS ORWELL, as the sell-out play transfers from the Old Red Lion Theatre to Southwark Playhouse, on Wednesday 13 September 2017. Got any questions?
Following a sell-out run at the Old Red Lion in Islington, north London, where it finishes this Saturday, the world premiere of Mrs Orwell, starring Cressida Bonas and Peter Hamilton Dyer, will transfer south of the river to Southwark Playhouse.
Based on actual events, and set in University College Hospital in London in 1949, Tony Cox’s Mrs Orwell is a depiction of what was to become George Orwell’s final bout of illness.
Tony Cox’s bittersweet play manages to hit the heart over and over again thanks to two strong performances from Cressida Bonas and Peter Hamilton Dyer.
The slow reveal of Sonia’s growing love for George is well played by Cressida Bonas, who by the end of this story seems like a woman who’d kill to protect her man. Peter Hamilton Dyer is also brilliant as George Orwell.
Peter Hamilton Dyer and Cressida Bonas star as George Orwell and his second, much younger wife in the world premiere of Tony Cox’s MRS ORWELL, exploring the private side of one of the most public icons of the 20th century. This latest Proud Haddock production has a strictly limited season at London’s Old Red Lion Theatre from 1 to 26 August 2017. Check out the rehearsal photography here.
