Potter’s Wright faces Moment Of Truth

First Published 24 May 2013, Last Updated 24 May 2013

Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright, best known for playing Ginny Weasley in the incredibly successful series of films about the boy wizard, will become the latest of the franchise’s younger stars to take to the London stage when she appears in The Moment Of Truth at the Southwark Playhouse.

The actress, who appeared in every one of the hit films, will play The Girl in Peter Ustinov’s tale of toppling governments, war and propaganda, which will run from 26 June until 20 July (press night 28 June).

Ustinov’s play is set in a republic on the verge of collapse. Of its government, only its unpopular Prime Minister and naïve Foreign Minister remain in a cabinet office where toy soldiers mask the reality of war, as the invading army inches closer.

Former Likely Lad Rodney Bewes also stars in the production, playing The Marshall, in a cast that also includes Mark Carey, Callum Coates, Toni Kanal, Damian Quinn, Miles Richardson and Daniel Souter.

Wright follows in the footsteps of former Potter co-stars including Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) who starred in Our Boys, Jessie Cave (Lavendar Brown) who appeared in Arcadia, Katie Leung (Cho Chang) who took to the stage in Wild Swans, Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas) who has been seen in both Antigone and Timon Of Athens at the National Theatre and Harry Melling (Dudley Dursley) who can currently be seen in The Hothouse. In fact, when Wright is starring in Southwark, her on screen love interest Daniel Radcliffe, who grew up before our movie-watching eyes playing Harry Potter, will lead the cast of The Cripple Of Inishmaan as part of the Michael Grandage Company’s season at the Noël Coward theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
