Rampling Makes UK Stage Debut in False ServantDate: 19 February 2004
Ageless British screen goddess Charlotte Rampling (pictured) will make her long overdue UK professional stage debut this summer when she stars in Jonathan Kent’s National Theatre production of Marivaux’s The False Servant, which opens in repertory at the NT Cottesloe on 1 June 2004 (previews from 26 May).
Though she has appeared on stage in Paris (where she now lives), most recently in Small Marital Crimes, Rampling is best known in the UK for her many film roles in the likes of Georgy Girl, The Knack, The Damned, The Verdict, Angel Heart, The Wings of the Dove, Under the Sand and Swimming Pool.
Rampling is joined in the cast of The False Servant by Lia Williams (Mappa Mundi, Skylight, The Homecoming, Oleanna), Adrian Scarborough (Humble Boy, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, The Day I Stood Still) and David Collings.
The production, in a new version of the play by Martin Crimp, is designed by Paul Brown, with lighting by Mark Henderson, music by Jeremy Sams and sound by Rich Walsh.
