Game Of Thrones star Harry Lloyd will return to the London stage this autumn when he stars in the transfer of Dostoyevsky’s Notes From Underground at the Print Room.
The British actor, who played Viserys Targaryen in the hit show, will star in the production, which was previously a hit in Paris, from 6 October to 1 November. The play, adapted from Dostoyevsky’s novella by Lloyd and director Gérald Garutti, will be the first to be staged in the Print Room’s new home, the Coronet cinema in Notting Hill.
Dostoyevsky’s tale of a man who chooses to lock himself away from society is followed from 4 November by Solomon And Marion, Lara Foot’s tale of an elderly South African struggling with grief for her dead son, husband and life in a country transformed. Dame Janet Suzman leads the cast as Marion, with Khayalethu Anthony playing the grandson of her former servant, who enters her life bringing hope with him.
Speaking about the season, which also includes Clive Francis’ one-man A Christmas Carol on 6 and 7 December, Print Room Artistic Director Anda Winters said: “We are thrilled to open the very first season in our fabulous new home in Notting Hill with these brilliant theatre productions. This is just the start of our new adventure as we begin to fulfil our ambition to create and present a programme of world-class drama, innovative dance, diverse music, poetry, exhibitions and other performing arts, alongside the best of world cinema.”
The Print Room is working with consultants Charcoalblue to transform the listed former Victorian playhouse into a new arts centre for London.
