Winstone brings Stranger to the stage

Published 14 December 2011

British film star Jaime Winstone is to return to the London stage in February when she stars opposite Being Human’s Russell Tovey in new play Sex With A Stranger.

The drama, which also stars Naomi Sheldon, runs at the Trafalgar Studio 2 from 1 to 25 February.

Written by Stefan Golaszewski, who also writes hit BBC3 sitcom Him And Her in which Tovey stars, Sex With A Stranger is the story of Adam, a man stuck in a rut and kept on a tight leash by his girlfriend. A friend’s birthday offers him the opportunity of a night out by himself, but a chance meeting in a nightclub tests his resolve.

Winstone, daughter of actor Ray Winstone, is best known for screen performances in TV series including Dead Set and Five Daughters, and films such as Made In Dagenham and Donkey Punch.

Tovey, who has been acting professionally since appearing in mid-90s CBBC series Mud when he was barely a teenager, has already amassed an impressive CV, which ranges from guest star appearances in Doctor Who to BBC Dickens adaptation Little Dorrit and starring as one of the original cast of The History Boys. In 2012 he will take another guest star role in the eagerly anticipated second series of Sherlock.

Sheldon, the least well known of the trio, has stage credits including Daisy Pulls It Off at the Lyric Hammersmith and Reclining Nude With Black Stockings at the Arcola.

Sex With A Stranger runs at the Trafalgar Studio 2 following the Donmar Trafalgar season, which includes current show Dublin Carol and Huis Clos, which opens in the new year.

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.

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.

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.
