Murray Minted Martine
Beat this for a cast! Hell – try and beat it for a revival! The lovely Hannah Murray – late of Skins – with every Dad’s (of a certain age!) fantasy fragrance – Susan Penhaligan – unite for the first UK production of Jean-Jacques Bernard’s ‘Martine’ for 25 years.
Hannah Murray is best known for her role as Cassie in the first two series of Bafta-winning E4 drama Skins, and she currently plays Gilly in Game of Thrones. Susan Penhaligon is well known for playing Prue in the award-winning television drama A Bouquet of Barbed Wire and the situation comedy A Fine Romance with Judi Dench.
The Great War is over. It is the summer of 1920, in rural France.
By a dusty road, a girl is sitting under the shade of an apple tree. She sees someone walking towards her. He is a young man, just back from fighting in Syria. He joins her under the tree, and a tragic love story begins.
Wonderful! Opens 24 April for a four week run. It’s a tiny theatre so get a ticket while you can.
