Olivier Award-nominee Tyrone Huntley and Chronicles of Narnia star Georgie Henley will lead the cast in Philip Ridley's new play Angry at Southwark Playhouse.

The play consists of five gender-neutral monologues, each performed by either Henley or Huntley every night across the run, but which actor performs each individual monologue will alternate night-to-night. The themes include refugees, millennial anger, and interstellar travel.

Huntley's previous credits include Jesus Christ Superstar, Dreamgirls and it was recently announced that he'd be performing at the WhatsOnStage Awards in February. Henley is making her professional stage debut in the production. Max Lindsay will direct the five monologues.

Ridley is best known for plays including A Pitchfork Disney and Mercury Fur, with the former performed earlier this year underground at Shoreditch Town Hall, directed by Jamie Lloyd.

Angry runs at Southwark Playhouse from 14 February to 10 March.
