The pictures above will give you an idea of how funny and versatile the actors are in our new comedy, LONDON SUITE. Hayward Morse, for example, is playing a different person in each of the three photos. The other actors will amaze you too as they slip out of one role and into another. We chose this play especially for the holiday season so you would have a change to get out and have a good time.

Felicity Rhys and Adam Redmayne (A real life romance)
Remember ROLEPLAY by Alan Ayckbourn? We did it last year at about this time. Even the Kultursenatorin appeared and had a good laugh. Two of the characters were Justin and Julie-Ann. In the play, they were planning to get married and live a happy conventional life, but Justin decided, after meeting Julie-Ann's uptight parents, that the conventional life was not for him. Not enough oxygen! Instead, he ran off with Paige, a gangster moll played by Katie Kensit.
Well, this just goes to show you how different stage life is from real life. In real life the actor, Adam Redmayne fell in love with his stage wife, Felicity Rhys, and the two are living happily ever after in a house they rented in London. Felicity has just finished a film called 9 Steps To A New Start which we may see on our German television sets one day, and Adam has just finished doing a play called Take Two which got rave reviews. Like we said in the last newsletter, they come here separately and they go home together. There's magic at work here. That's the only explanation. Susan Shrand, who played Justin's mother, is planning a reunion party for the ROLEPLAY cast. They all had a great time in Hamburg , especially Adam and Felicity, needless to say.
