"The Lady Revealed" goes international

Lady Revealed British readingAndrew B. Harris’ Lady has gone to London.

Harris (above, right), professor of theatre history, play analysis and playwriting, saw his full-length play, The Lady Revealed, read July 4 at the Tristan Bates Theatre in London. The play, about historian A.L. Rowse’s revelation of the Dark Lady in William Shakespeare’s sonnets, made its debut at UNT last year and was presented as an Actors’ Equity workshop by Theatre Three in Dallas earlier this year.

The reading, which was open to theatres, producers and agents, featured Geoffrey Beevers (above, middle), known for his role as the third Master in Doctor Who, as Rowse. Other actors have appeared in British TV shows Downton Abbey and Doc Martin. Harris’ agent Philippe Carden organized the event to generate interest from British theaters to produce the play.

Harris said the experience was “amazing.”

“The casting was right on the mark in London,” he said. “It made it possible to pull this off with just a few hours of rehearsal. Also, everyone was marvelously appreciative.  I had expected a bit of hazing being an American writing about a British subject - not a bit of it.  We all just got down to work and had a great time. The operative word was professionalism.”

Harris previously had traveled to England to conduct research for the play. He tightened up the play after the Theatre Three workshop production in Dallas.

“A reading is one of many stages that a play goes through en route to a fully realized professional production,” said Harris. “Few people outside of the profession realize that the shift from page to stage is an arduous process that takes years of hard work. Hopefully, it all comes together in the end."
