Maisie Williams

Story by Jack Foley

GAME of Thrones star Maisie Williams, aka Arya Stark in the fantasy drama, is to make her stage debut in London later this year.

The 21-year-old actress will star in I And You at the Hampstead Theatre.

She will play Caroline, a sickly teen who hasn’t been to school for months, but who develops an unlikely friendship with Anthony, a boy who pops in with a school project.

Lauren Gunderson’s play runs at Hampstead Theatre from October 25 (previews from October 18) to November 24, 2018.

Gunderson was the most produced playwright in America in 2017-18, according to American Theatre magazine. I And You was first staged in San Francisco in 2013.

Gunderson is currently writing a follow-up.

The Hampstead production will be directed by the theatre’s artistic director Edward Hall.

It forms part of Hampstead Theatre’s next round of productions for the Main Stage and Hampstead Downstairs, which also includes the UK premiere of the highly successful Broadway production of The Humans by Stephen Karam.
