Recent graduate lands leading role in West End show

Posted on 16/01/2012

naomiOne of our recent graduates, Naomi Sheldon (Drama and English, pictured far right), has landed a leading role opposite Russell Tovey in Sex With A Stranger, a three-hander in the West End due to open soon.

Further details, below, from http://bit.ly/yFd1cO.

Sex With A Stranger is the third play from Stefan Golaszewski; writer of BBC 3's hit sitcom Him & Her and erstwhile writer and star of BBC 4's critically acclaimed Cowards.  Golaszewski's first two one man plays (Stefan Golaszewski Speak About A Girl He Once Loved, and Stefan Golaszewski Is A Widower) dealt with teenage love and adult demise respectively, here he plugs the gap with a play about the middle part; the confused bit in our twenties when we're a little unsure of whether we're grown ups yet.

Adam (Russell Tovey) snubs his girlfriend Ruth (Naomi Sheldon), and leaves her at home while he goes out for a mate's birthday.  Later that evening he picks up Grace (Jamie Winstone) at a club and gets the nightbus back to hers.  Bleak, funny and excruciatingly accurate, Golaszewski's play locates the place where three lives - with all that has gone before, and all is yet to happen - entwine in a cheerless morass of uncertainty, boredom, loneliness and empty lust.
