All New People Welcomes Torchwood Co-Star

View the Article:

Eve Myles of BBC Torchwood fame is to take to the West End stage this spring. She will join Zach Braff and Susannah Fielding in comedy All New People at the Duke Of York's Theatre in London.

The comedy play, which is also written by Braff, will play at the Duke of York's theatre from February and focuses on a 35-year-old man trying to hide away from the world on his birthday.  The west end production of the play is directed in the west end production by Peter DuBois.

All New People will mark Eve Myles's return to the London stage after having seen her profile rise since taking the role of Gwen in the BBC Doctor Who spin-off  Torchwood in 2006. Before her TV sci-fi fame, Myles had performed with the RSC, winning plaudits for her 2003 performances in Titus Andronicus and The Taming Of The Shrew, and at the National Theatre, where she starred opposite Matthew Macfadyen and Michael Gambon in Henry IV Pt I and II.

Speaking about her role in the play, Myles said: "I'm delighted to have been cast as the character of Emma in such a well anticipated and funny play. Having concentrated on TV work recently I'm excited to be returning to the stage and I'm very much looking forward to working with Zach."

Fielding, like Myles, has also previously worked with both the RSC and the National Theatre, as well as appearing in TV show Doctor Who.

Zach Braff, best known for his role as doctor JD in hit American TV comedy Scrubs, and plays the lead role in his own play in which the depressing birthday, which he wishes to be spent in complete solitude, is interrupted by a parade of misfits who somehow all  find themselves entangled at a beach house.

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