My City trailer, photos and interview with Tom Riley

Ideas Tap posted an interview with Tom yesterday, where he talks about preparing for auditions and LAMDA. Read the interview in full on their website. 

What is it about auditions that you find difficult?

I’ve always struggled with auditions a bit, but I’m getting better at them. I’ve just worked on Arcadia on Broadway in New York, and what was interesting was seeing how the many Americans handle auditions, which is very different from the standard British way. 

The Almeida Theatre have uploaded some new rehearsal photos taken by Hugo Gendinning to their website. Spoonfed have a related My City article with a photo of Stephen Poliakoff and Tom's back. Week 3 of the My City rehearsal diary has been shared on the Almeida Theatre blog.

David Oakes interviews and press scans

A number of scans from articles and interviews in the recent British press, including the Sunday Telegraph interview, have been added to the website galleries. Thanks to Lorna for sharing.

I'd be camping in Purbeck in Dorset and would wake up at first light in my tent, hopefully in the arms of a beautiful woman... ...After breakfast I would leave said beautiful woman sleeping in the tent (she'd be a lazy sort) and begin a tour of my favourite childhood spots... 

The recent Sky Atlantic video interview has also been added to the galleries.

David Oakes in Truth or Dare

The Screen Terrier website has posted an article about an independent horror film which David filmed at the beginning of the year. Truth or Dare produced by Corona Pictures and directed by Robert Heath is now in post-production. AV Pictures have world wide sales rights.

The British Film Council have a full synopsis for the film with links to the Truth or Dare official website. There is also a Facebook Page for the film.

Five teenage friends are taken hostage by a vengeful psychopath and forced to play a party game with life-or-death consequences. An end-of-year party for an 'alpha' group of first year university students turns nasty when a game of 'truth or dare' ends in humiliation for ultra-rich social misfit Felix.

For five students at the gathering, this unpleasant but seemingly minor incident will have unexpectedly devastating repercussions. Some months later, the friends meet again en route to a surprise party for Felix, who has been away traveling. Arriving at the venue - an old hunting lodge - they are met by Justin, Felix's charismatic older brother, who explains that Felix will be late for the party. He persuades the gang to join him in getting drunk in his sibling's absence, but psychopathic rage bubbles beneath Justin's charming exterior, and the real reason for the gathering is revealed: Felix has committed suicide, and Justin is determined to find out why.

On a dusky evening, Richard Kenton finds his primary school headmistress lying on a park bench in the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral. As he becomes reacquainted with her and the other teachers that helped shape him, memories of their vivid and imaginative lessons come to life and their tales of London inspire him once more.

Rocket to the Moon: returns tonight but now closes early


Bloomberg have listed Rocket to the Moon in their culture list for this weekend, as the play resumes at the National Theatre this evening. It only runs until 9th June now - remember to buy your tickets. Joseph and Keeley Hawes also have their 'in conversation' platform on 9th June.

Cleo (Jessica Raine) is the personable assistant in “Rocket to the Moon,” a 1938 Clifford Odets play that returns to London’s National Theatre this weekend. She hopes to take a plane, a boat or a rocket to wherever, preferably in the company of her married boss (Joseph Millson). Though the play runs on, the cast is well steered, and sets -- including a tiled 1930s corridor -- are handsome.
