Anna X

Anna X

A fictional imagining inspired by real life events.

Overview

Anna. 25. Curator. Retired intern. Previously @RAW magazine. I ♥ art, fashion, NYC.
Ariel. 32. CEO of @GenesisApp. A social and dating network by invitation only. SF-NYC-LDN.

Immersed in an addictive world of front-row fashion shows, private views, and endless parties, Anna and Ariel find themselves struggling to keep up with New York’s dazzling social elite. How far will two outsiders go to construct the identities they want? And at what price?

Golden Globe Award-winner Emma Corrin (Netflix’s The Crown) and Royal Television Society’s 2019 Breakthrough star Nabhaan Rizwan (Informer, BBC) make their West End debuts in this searing tale of self-invention, determination, and deceit. Inspired by real events, ANNA X is a new play by Joseph Charlton (Brilliant Jerks, VAULT Festival), directed by Daniel Raggett (The Human Voice, Gate Theatre), coming to the Harold Pinter Theatre.

A fictional imagining inspired by real life events.

Following a year of extraordinary challenge, and as British theatre begins to re-emerge from the devastating impact of the enforced shutdown, SFP announces a season of new plays for a new world. The RE:EMERGE season will create a space for vital, new voices and fresh talent in the West End, working alongside some of the industry’s greatest theatremakers and artists. The extraordinary collection of plays curated by SFP alongside Ian Rickson – Artistic Director for the season - tackles urgent issues integral to rebuilding our society, including structural inequality, climate change and the economics of truth in an internet age. Supported by Arts Council England thanks to National Lottery funding, RE:EMERGE will celebrate and support the theatre-makers of the future, and provide vital work for the freelance community.
