Gwyneth Strong Joins A ROUND-HEELED WOMAN At Aldwych Theatre


Television and theatre actress Gwyneth Strong has joined Sharon Gless in the cast of A ROUND-HEELED-WOMAN at the Aldwych Theatre. Gwyneth is a familiar face on TV and is best known for her role as Cassandra in the classic series Only Fools and Horses. In addition to numerous theatre roles, Gwyneth has also recently been seen on TV in Midsomer Murders, New Tricks, Murder in Suburbia, Casualty and on the Harry Enfield Brand Spanking New Show. Although Gwyneth has worked at the Bush, the Royal Court, Hampstead Theatre and for the RSC, A ROUND-HEELED WOMAN will mark her West End stage debut. A ROUND-HEELED WOMAN stars multiple Emmy & Golden Globe award-winning actress Sharon Gless and is based on Jane Juska's best-selling, self-penned book of the same name.

Along with Sharon Gless and Gwyneth Strong, the cast at the Aldwych Theatre includes Beth Cordingly, Barry McCarthy, Neil McCaul, and Michael Thomson. A ROUND-HEELED WOMAN is a strictly limited season, ending on 14 January.

Retired Californian English teacher and divorcee, Jane Juska realised, after 30 years of being ‘severely deprived’ of touch, that she ‘liked men’! She decided to place a personals ad in her favourite periodical, The New York Review of Books: Before I turn 67 – next March – I would like to have a lot of sex with a man I like. If you want to talk first, Trollope works for me. She received 63 replies, from men aged between 32 and 84, and went on to write of her experiences in A Round-Heeled Woman – My Late-Life Adventures in Sex & Romance.

Sharon Gless plays Jane Juska. Fondly remembered as sharp-talking cop Christine Cagney in the long-running series Cagney & Lacey, her other many critically-acclaimed television roles include Debbie Novotny in Queer as Folk and Madeline Westen in Burn Notice. She has appeared twice before on the London stage, in the stage version of Stephen King’s Misery and in Neil Simon’s Chapter Two.

A ROUND-HEELED WOMAN has been written for the stage and is directed by British writer/director Jane Prowse, who also co-wrote and directed the Olivier-nominated musical Up on the Roof. Her prolific television work includes Ghost Train and Witness for Lynda La Plante’s Trial and Retribution and the BBC's much repeated Christmas film, The Greatest Store in the World. She has also written three children’s novels – the Hattori Hachi trilogy. Set Design is by Ian Fisher, Costume Design is by David Blight and lighting by Nick Richings.

A ROUND-HEELED WOMAN is produced in London by BrIan Eastman, with Andrew Welch as executive producer.
