Photos: THE UNBUILT CITY Opens Tonight

On a cold afternoon in February, Jonah knocks on the door of a townhouse in Brooklyn Heights. He's come to ask Claudia to sell her famously secret collection to a university archive. But in order to do that, he'll have to persuade her to reveal her own enigmatic past, and to illuminate a series of mysteries about the nature of love, legacy and the untold history of New York City.

Sandra Dickinson (I Loved Lucy in the West End) and Jonathan Chambers (Doubt, A Parable, Southwark Playhouse) star in the European prermiere of The Unbuilt City by Keith Bunin, directed by Glen Walford, at the King's Head Theatre from Wednesday 6 - Saturday 30 June.

Press night is Friday 8 June at 7.00pm.

The Unbuilt City had its world premiere presented by New York Stage And Film Vassar in The Powerhouse Season summer 2015. This European premiere is just the second time the play has been staged.

It is produced by Making Productions and Graffiti Productions.

Sandra Dickinson (Claudia) recently starred as Lucille Ball in I Loved Lucy at the Arts Theatre in the West End, receiving a clutch of rave reviews

Born in Washington DC, Sandra Dickinson found fame in the UK in the 1970s as the star of Birds Eye beefburger TV adverts. They established her in a succession of American 'dumb blonde' roles, and it was many years before she was able to shake that image. She has since enjoyed a prolific career on stage and screen. Her West End shows include Singin' In The Rain, A Streetcar Named Desire, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Not About Nightingales (NT and Broadway) and Orpheus Descending (Donmar Warehouse). Her films include Steven Spielberg's 2018 release Ready Player One, Malice In Wonderland, Supergirl and Superman III. Among many TV roles she is probably best known as Trillian in the cult sci-fi TV series The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. She can be heard voicing various roles in Gumball, Counterfeit Cat and she is the voice of Grandma Tracy in ITV's Thunderbirds Are Go.
