The first photos have been released of Ramona Von Pusch as Marlene Dietrich and Ashton Spear as King Edward VIII in the world premiere of Falling In Love Again. Written by Ron Elisha and directed by Tama Matheson, the production plays until 8 February at London’s King’s Head Theatre.
It’s 1936. News breaks that King Edward VIII is about to abdicate his throne in order to marry American divorcée, Wallis Simpson.
Marlene Dietrich – the most famous female movie star in the world – is in London to make a movie and wants to stop him.
On the night before the abdication, Marlene has her chauffeur drive her to Fort Belvedere, the King’s country home, for an all nighter, during which she sings, dances, races a horse and plays the musical saw, all in an effort to seduce him. But will her efforts pay off?
Falling in Love Again plays at the King’s Head Theatre until 8 February 2020.
