A Lancashire-based actor has won a prestigious role in a dynamic new drama, which explores troubled teen relationships. Wigan based Eleanor Hawthorne was chosen from over 50 applicants to star alongside Longridge-based actor Kieren Spencer in ROMEO JONES – the latest offering from Preston’s longest running professional theatre company, Certain Curtain Theatre.
Fresh from it’s triumphant run of WOMAN ON FIRE at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Certain Curtain Theatre is now taking this original play into Lancashire schools thanks to support from The Police Crime Commissioner and The Francis C Scott Trust.
Eleanor is currently in rehearsal with her part of JULIET SMITH – a star-crossed lover, who discovers that her Romeo may not be all that he appears to be.
“Eleanor is a talented, young actress and just right for the part of Juliet Smith,’ says Writer-Director John Woudberg, “ which requires a mix of vulnerability and strength. ‘Romeo Jones’ takes the world’s greatest love-story as its jumping off point but is very different from Shakespeare’s play.”
