Two new plays for Hampstead



Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

THIS spring, two new plays come to Hampstead Theatre - The Girl With Red Hair by Sharman Macdonald and Little Sweet Thing from Roy Williams.

The Girl With Red Hair premieres on March 23, 2005, and will run for a limited period only - until April 16.

Set in a small Scottish town, it features three generations - relatives, friends, strangers even - whose lives have been affected by the death, in a car crash a year earlier, of 17-year-old Roslyn - the titular girl with the red hair.

And with shades of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, Roslyn is never seen on stage.

Macdonald's first play, When I Was A Girl I Used to Scream and Shout, premiered at The Bush theatre and won the Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright Award. It subsequently transferred to the West End and went on tour.

Little Sweet Thing opens on April 19, 2005, for five days only and centres upon Tash whose brother Kev, an ex-con, is trying to go straight, in spite of his past constantly catching up with him.

Threatened by the gang culture that surrounds them and striving to maintain her hard-girl image, Tash finds a way out. But it's not what anyone was expecting.

Little Sweet Thing is an Eclipse Theatre production.
