- Tamsin at the Royal Court
TAMSIN OUTHWAITE stars in a new play at the Royal Court. Che Walker's drama is called Flesh Wound and opens May 15 following the theatre's recently extended run of Hitchcock Blond.
Walker's tale focuses on a young boy's close shave with the mafia. Outhwaite draws on her experience as Eastenders' self-sufficient Mel to play the role of sister Deirdra, a young girl who avoids her family's shady connections by renting her own London flat and working for her independence.
Walker consolidates his reputation for violent plays full of sex and revenge. First produced at the Royal Court in 1998, he made his name with Been So Long, a play to rival Martin McDonagh's The Lieutenant of Inishmore for sheer bloodiness. McDonagh's director Wilson Milam directs Flesh Wound in what promises to be a gritty production.
