Wednesday, September 09, 2009 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

In the highly charged thriller SPEAKING IN TONGUES, the basis for the film Lantana, the seemingly random confessions of a group of strangers are pieced together by a detective investigating the disappearance of a leading psychiatrist. A powerful study of infidelity and interwoven lives, the play stars John Simm (Life on Mars, State of Play), returning to the stage to lead an exciting cast including Ian Hart (The Virgin Queen, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone), Lucy Cohu (The Queen's Sister, Torchwood) and Kerry Fox (An Angel at my Table, Shallow Grave).

SPEAKING IN TONGUES will have its West End premiere at the Duke of York's Theatre. Writer Andrew Bovell's previous work includes Baz Luhrmann's Strictly Ballroom, When The Rain Stops Falling at the Almeida Theatre and his own adaptation of SPEAKING IN TONGUES into the internationally acclaimed film Lantana.
