Photo Flash: Ben Chaplin in 'The Reporter'

Film and stage star Ben Chaplin headlines Nicholas Wright's play The Reporter on the West End.  The production, directed by Richard Eyre (Mary Poppins), began performances at The National Theatre on February 14th and opened on the 20th.

"Based on the remarkable life of the star BBC correspondent James Mossman during his last years, 1963 to 1971, The Reporter searches for the truth behind his bewildering suicide. What lies beneath the surface? Or is the surface ultimately all there is? An enthralling detective story by Nicholas Wright, whose recent work at the National includes Vincent in Brixton (also directed by Richard Eyre), and his adaptations of His Dark Materials and Thérèse Raquin," state National Theatre notes.

Bruce Alexander, Leo Bill, Patrick Brennan, John Cummins, Aleksander Mikic, Chris New, Angelo Paragoso, Gillian Raine, Paul Ritter, Angela Thorne and Tilly Tremayne are also featured in the production.

Chaplin received a Tony nomination for his performance in The Retreat from Moscow and an Olivier Award nomination for his work in The Glass Menagerie.  His film credits include The New World, Stage Beauty, Birthday Girl, Washington Square, The Thin Red Line and The Truth About Cats and Dogs.
