Michelle Collins will star as Marion in the first major revival of Chloë Moss’s play How Love Is Spelt, which opens at Southwark Playhouse on Wednesday 4th September and runs until Saturday 28th September.
Also joining the cast are Nigel Boyle (Line of Duty, Peaky Blinders), Benjamin O’Mahony (BBC’s Ripper Street), Yana Penrose (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre), Larner Wallace-Taylor (An Inspector Calls, UK tour), and Duncan Moore (Windows and Caste, Finborough Theatre).
How Love Is Spelt is directed by Charlotte Peters (Associate Director War Horse UK Tour and An Inspector Calls West End) and designed by Georgia de Grey, who was a finalist for the Linbury Prize for Stage Design in 2013 and nominated for an Off-West End award for her set design for Alkaline at the Park Theatre.
Set in 2004, How Love Is Spelt tells the story of Peta, who’s new in town and ready for whatever London has to throw at her. She’s looking for romance, for friendship, for exciting people to lead her on big adventures.
This nostalgic and honest meditation on love and relationships from Susan Smith Blackburn Prize-winning playwright Chloë Moss (This Wide Night, Soho Theatre; Dickensian, BBC) was first produced and performed at the Bush Theatre in 2004.
