THE STAGE – David Morrissey, Jenna Coleman and Denise Gough are to star in the first play in a new series of live-streamed readings.

They will feature alongside Ed Stoppard and Maggie Service in a reading of Tom Stoppard’s A Separate Peace, which was originally written for TV in 1966.

It forms part of The Remote Read, a series of live play readings that will be streamed through Zoom organised by online theatre network CurtainCall.

A Separate Peace, which is directed by Sam Yates, will be live streamed at 7pm on May 2.

Tickets cost between £7.50 and £20 – with households of several people encouraged to pay more – and the money raised will go towards supporting theatre technicians and creatives out of work due to Covid-19, as well as the Felix Project food charity.

Yates said: “Tom Stoppard’s one-act play is a vibrant and moving exploration of connectedness and care. It is exciting to explore the possibilities of a new and untested form – presenting a play online – with a stellar cast, designer, lighting designer, sound designer and stage manager. It comes at a time when artists are exploring how we can adapt our practices and connect with audiences.”

A Separate Peace has lighting design by Nat Green, sound by Sam Glossop, costume by Amelia Sierevogel and tech by Tim Kashani. The production manager for the show is Kate West and the stage manager Georgia Bird.

The production team have adapted their roles to work digitally.

Partners for The Remote Read project include Platform Presents and Apples and Oranges Arts.

YAHOO NEWS – Jenna Coleman looks unrecognisable in first-look pictures from new crime drama The Serpent.

The former Doctor Who star appears opposite Ellie Bamber, Tahar Rahim and Billy Howle in the BBC One thriller about Charles Sobhraj, one of the most elusive criminals of the 20th century.

In the first pictures from the eight-part drama, in which Coleman plays Sobhraj’s partner Marie-Andree Leclerc, she is seen with long, dark brown hair, colourful 1970s attire and tinted sunglasses.

Alongside her is French actor Rahim as Sobhraj, the chief suspect in the unsolved murders of young Western travellers across India, Thailand and Nepal’s “Hippie Trail” in 1975 and 1976.

Howle and Bamber are seen in character as Herman and Angela Knippenberg respectively.

Described as a “psychopath, con man, thief and master of disguise”, who repeatedly slipped the grasp of authorities worldwide, Sobhraj was Interpol’s most wanted man by 1976 and had arrest warrants issued on three different continents.

The drama will see Outlaw King and MotherFatherSon actor Howle as Herman Knippenberg, a junior diplomat at the Dutch embassy in Bangkok, unwittingly walk into Sobhraj’s intricate web of crime, and set off a chain of events that will see him try to bring Sobhraj to justice.Nocturnal Animals star Bamber previously said that discovering the Knippenbergs’ story “has been every bit as inspiring as it is fascinating”.

Coleman said that the programme “intoxicated me into the dark seductive world of Charles Sobhraj”, adding: “I’m so looking forward to delving into hippie trail depths and bringing to life this unfathomable real life story.”

The series, produced by Mammoth Screen, was filmed on location in Thailand and will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK, and on Netflix outside of the UK and Ireland. (source)

VARIETY – Jenna Coleman will switch from starring as the long-reining British sovereign in “Victoria” to play Marie-Andrée Leclerc, the partner and accomplice of French serial killer Charles Sobrhaj, in the BBC and Netflix drama “The Serpent.” Coleman will star alongside the previously announced Tahar Rahim, who plays Sobrhaj, as well as Ellie Bamber and Billy Howle, who have joined the series.

Sobhraj was the chief suspect in the unsolved murders of up to 20 young travelers across India, Thailand, and Nepal’s hippie trail in the mid-1970s. Having slipped repeatedly from the grasp of authorities worldwide, he became Interpol’s most wanted man.

Howle will play Herman Knippenberg, a junior diplomat at the Dutch Embassy in Bangkok who unwittingly walks into Sobhraj’s web of crime and ultimately seeks to bring him to justice. Bamber will appear as his wife, Angela.

The BBC will launch the series in the U.K. Netflix will carry it in the U.S. and the rest of the world. ITV-owned indie Mammoth Screen is producing. Tom Shankland and Hans Herbots direct from Richard Warlow and Toby Finlay’s script. The show is filming on location in Thailand.

“‘The Serpent’ intoxicated me into the dark seductive world of Charles Sobhraj,” Coleman said. “I’m so looking forward to delving into hippie-trail depths and bringing to life this unfathomable real life story alongside Tahar, Billy, Ellie, Tom, Richard and the wonderful cast and production team for the BBC and Netflix.” (source)
