Joanna Vanderham joins London Dazzle

Published November 6, 2015

Joanna Vanderham will join Andrew Scott in the UK premiere of Richard Greenberg’s The Dazzle at new venue Found111 next month.

The Scottish actress, who was recently seen on screen in the BBC’s adaptation of The Go-Between, will play Milly in the production from 10 December to 30 January. She returns to the London stage following Penelope Skinner’s adaptation of The Promise, which played as part of 2012’s Donmar Trafalgar season.

Set in New York at the beginning of the 20th century, The Dazzle charts the story of two brothers who are sitting in their home surrounded by 136 tons of hoarded junk when a beautiful guest – Vanderham’s Milly – arrives, throwing everyone’s lives into sharp focus.

Vanderham joins the previously announced Sherlock star Scott and Posh’s David Dawson, who play brothers Langley and Homer in Simon Evans’ production.

The 2000 play from the Three Days Of Rain and Take Me Out playwright will be brought to life in the former home of Central St Martins on Charing Cross Road.

The Dazzle is the latest production from Emily Dobbs Productions, the company behind 2014’s Uncle Vanya at the St James Theatre, and the Michael Grandage Company, whose Nicole Kidman-led hit Photograph 51 is currently being enjoyed by audiences at the Noël Coward Theatre.
