Suranne Jones Will Host Post-show Q&A Event For SPY FOR SPY at Riverside Studios

The event is on Saturday 24 June after the 7.30pm show.

MATILDA THE MUSICAL Announces West End Extension; See New Footage From the Show!

Suranne Jones, the multi-award-winning actor best known for starring roles in Gentleman Jack, Vigil, Doctor Foster and Scott and Bailey, will host a special Q&A event on Saturday 24 June after the 7.30pm show, fielding questions for playwright Kieron Barry, and cast members Olive Gray and Amy Lennox.

Spy for Spy is a romantic comedy with a difference; a drama performed like a playlist. The inner workings of a modern relationship are recounted in a random order so no two performances of this brand-new play by Kieron Barry will be the same. Spy for Spy is playing the Hammersmith venue's Studio 3 from Thursday 15 June to Sunday 2 July, with a press night on Tuesday 20 June.

Spy for Spy is a co-production between Feather Productions and TeamAkers Productions.

Each night, select members of the audience will have the opportunity to choose the order of the scenes of the performance they're about to see. Before the show, six audience members will be asked to pick a displayed song title at random. Each song title relates to a scene, and the order in which the song titles are picked, will be the order in which the scenes are performed. 

Suranne Jones added, “Unfortunately, due to filming commitments, I'm unable to be with the company for opening night, but I'm hugely excited to be able to come along on the 24th, chat with Amy, Olive and Keiron and take questions from the audience.”

Love, Shuffled

Sarah and Molly are two Californians who love each other – and that's all they have in common. As the uptight lawyer and the free-spirited dreamer strive to make their improbable relationship work, we see them break up, meet the parents, move in together and fall in love – all in a completely random sequence.

Spy for Spy asks if our lives make more sense in the wrong order, and if there is any logic to love as it zigzags from moving drama to laugh-out-loud comedy.

Can we have love without grief? Is honesty nothing more than cruelty? Is intimacy just spying?

Review: RIGOLETTO, Opera Holland Park

Bullying, sexism, corruption, initiation ordeals and debauched behaviour. No, it’s not another government inquiry into the antics of the elite, but Opera Holland Park kicking off the 2023 season by way of a new and thought-provoking production of Rigoletto.
