Jenny Rainsford and Gerald Kyd Star in Park Theatre's LITTLE BLACK BOOK, Now thru Jan 19

WSP presents Little Black Book by Jean-Claude Carrière, translated by Solvène Tiffou and directed by Kate Fahy at the Park Theatre, running today, December 17, 2013 through January 19, 2014. Jenny Rainsford stars as 'She' and Gerald Kyd stars as 'He' in what Fahy told the Daily Mail is a "romantic, sexy, funny and absurd story" rarely seen in the UK.

The Park's website describes the play: "Unaware that his apartment door is ajar, a man is making coffee, preparing to leave for work. A woman enters silently, carrying a suitcase. Who is she? What does she want? Will she find it?...A very French love story from writer Jean-Claude Carriere, long time collaborator of Bunuel and Peter Brook."

Written by Jean Claude Carriere and directed by Fahy, LITTLE BLACK BOOK is desiged by William Fricker with sound design by Jing Ng, original music by Sophie Cotton and lighting by Leigh Porter.

His TV credits include The Bible miniseries, The Midnight Beast, Persons Unknown, Casualty, the 2003 TV movie version of Richard II and more.
