So my next role is in a show that in all honesty, I'd never even heard of before getting a last minute call to audition for it....!
However, having spent some time getting to know Dogfight, I'm now hugely excited to be a part of the European premiere production at the Southwark Playhouse. Based on the movie of the same name and set in 1960's San Fransisco, it tells the story of young marine Eddie and Rose, the waitress he enlists to win a cruel bet on the night before he and his friends are deployed to Vietnam.
I don't want to give away too much about how Marcy (aka yours truly) fits into the story; suffice it to say that she's about as far removed from any of the roles I've previously played as it's possible to get! I can't wait to get stuck into rehearsals and the gorgeous score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
The production runs from August 8th-September 13th. Given that tickets for In The Heights at the same venue were like gold dust recently, I'd advise booking sooner rather than later!
Hope to see some of you there. I'm most looking forward to getting my hands on her teeth. You'll understand if you see the show....
