Rehearsal photos have been released for the hard-hitting For the Sake of Argument, which follows the story of Eleanor Hickock, a passionate and argumentative polemical journalist who becomes the Iraq War’s chief evangelist.
Playing at London’s Bridewell Theatre, this hard-hitting production interrogates the power and danger of language, as one journalist’s words send a young man to enlist for the frontline.
Treading the boards after roles in TV and Hollywood blockbusters is Georgie Farmer (Ready Player One, Warner Brothers; Mowgli, Netflix; Treadstone, USA Network), joining the cast alongside Greg Snowden (Emmerdale, Coronation Street, ITV; My Mind is Free, Rah Rah Theatre Company). The Circle’s (Channel 4) Ella May performs alongside Lucia France (A Touch of Frost, ITV; Prowler, Amazon Prime; The Guinness World Records Live, UK tour) and Matt Weyland (Call the Midwife, Miranda, BBC; The Crucible, Old Vic).
For the Sake of Argument runs at the Bridewell Theatre from Tuesday 28 January – Saturday 8 February 2020.
