Agyness Deyn To Make West End Debut In The Leisure Society

View the Article:

Agyness Deyn, the British supermodel will make her stage debut in The Leisure Society, a new comedy about a vulgar couple with more money than sense along side veteran stage actor Ed Stoppard.

François Archambault's comedy play The Leisure Society will open in the west end at Trafalgar Studios 2 on March 1st 2012 with previews from February 28th. A deliciously funny and offensive satire, the four-hander tells the story of a work-numbed, self-obsessed couple, played by Ed Stoppard and Melanie Gray, who suddenly find their life has gone out of control.

The Leisure Society is set over the course of an evening of drunken debauchery with their fast-living best friend and his young 'friend' with benefits, and is described as a morality play with no morals exploring a world of both self-indulgence and excess.

Agyness Deyn will play the promiscuous and free-spirited Paula. The UK super model has graced the cover of fashion magazines and walked down catwalks all over the world and is the face of numerous high-profile fashion houses.  Vogue Paris listed her as one of the top 30 models in the world over the last 10 years, and after deciding to take a break from modelling to forge a career in acting, she made her debut in the 2010Hollywood movie Clash Of The Titans playing Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love.

Ed Stoppard makes his return to the London stage after the hit revival of Arcadia at the Duke of York's theatre in 2009 with his other stage credits including English Touring Theatre's Hamlet, The Glass Menagerie at the Apollo Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre's The Seagull. He is also a well known face on TV, and starred in the recent remake of Upstairs Downstairs and Tchaikovsky: Fortune And Tragedy.

The London premiere of The Leisure Society at Trafalgar Studios 2 will be directed by Harry Burton and will run until 24th March 2012.

Theatre tickets in London to all west end plays, musicals and stage shows can be purchased securely through both BmyConcierge and Theatre Tickets London.
