Despite her stage fright, however, Osbourne has already agreed to extend her limited season, which commences on 10 September, by a week to 3 November to meet box office demand (See News, 23 Aug 2007). Osbourne plays prison matron Mama Morton, the murderesses’ dodgy-dealing mother hen, traditionally taken by a much older actress. At just 22, she’s believed to be the youngest person to be cast in the supporting role, currently performed by Susie McKenna in the West End. Following her stint in London, Osbourne is tipped to make her US stage debut in the Broadway production of Chicago.
