DAVID SCHWIMMER
TO STAR IN THE WORLD PREMIERE OF
 

“SOME GIRL(S)”

 A NEW PLAY BY NEIL LABUTE 

AT THE GIELGUD THEATRE

 PREVIEWING FROM 12 MAY

David Schwimmer will star in the world premiere of “SOME GIRL(S)” a new play by the controversial American playwright and film-maker Neil LaBute. Directed by David Grindley, the play will preview at the Gielgud Theatre in London from 12 May, with a press night on 24 May. The show marks American film and television actor David Schwimmer’s West End stage debut. Further casting will be announced at a later date.  

In love, if you wait for second chances, you could be waiting a long time. Wouldn't it be simpler just to schedule all those chances into one quick trip...?  David Schwimmer makes his West End debut in the world premiere of Neil LaBute's biting new comedy “SOME GIRL(S)” - an irreverent stumble into the heart of darkness that is the modern single male.

Writer, director, and playwright Neil LaBute’s plays include “The Mercy Seat”, written and directed by LaBute in Autumn 2002 in New York starring Sigourney Weaver and Liev Schrieber; “The Distance From Here”, written by LaBute, which ran at the Almeida Theatre in London in Spring 2003 and spring 2004 in New York; “The Shape of Things”  which LaBute wrote and directed for London and New York in 2001, and which recently completed a revival staging in London at a the New Ambassadors Theatre; and “bash: latter-day plays”, which LaBute wrote and directed for New York and London in 1999.  This March, his latest play, “This Is How It Goes”, will premiere at New York’s Public Theatre and will be directed by George Wolfe.  In May, the play will debut in the West End at the Donmar Warehouse.  Films include “In the Company of Men”, which won the New York Critics’ Circle Award for Best First Feature and the Filmmaker’s Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival; “Your Friends & Neighbors”; “Nurse Betty”; “Possession”; and “The Shape of Things”, which was a film adaptation of his play by the same title. He is also the author of several fictional pieces that have been published in “The New York Times”, “The New York Times Magazine”, “Harper’s Bazaar”, and “Playboy” among others. “Seconds of Pleasure”, a collection of his short stories, was published by Grove Atlantic in October 2004.

Internationally known for his Emmy nominated role as ‘Ross Geller’ in the US TV series "Friends", David Schwimmer studied theatre at Northwestern University, before founding the acclaimed Lookingglass Theatre Company in Chicago - an ensemble for whom he continues to act, direct and produce.

His stage-acting credits with Lookingglass include "The Idiot”, “Arabian Nights”, “West", "The Odyssey", "Of One Blood", "In the Eye of the Beholder" and "The Master and Margarita". His stage-directing credits include "The Jungle", which earned six Joseph Awards; his adaption of Studs Terkel's book “Race”: "How Blacks And Whites Think And Feel About The American Obsession" and "Alice in Wonderland", which was performed at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland.

He has also starred in the stage premieres of Roger Kumble’s “D Girl” and "Turnaround" in Los Angeles, and in Warren Leight’s “Glimmer Brothers” in Williamstown.   As well as his role in ten years of "Friends", Schwimmer has also starred in Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg's mini-series “Band of Brothers”, in “Hotel”, a dark comedy from Mike Figgis and “Uprising”, the NBC miniseries about the Jewish resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto. Other television credits include roles on such series as “Monty” with Henry Winkler, “NYPD Blue”, “The Wonder Years” and “L.A.Law”.

His feature film credits include the independent feature “Duane Hopwood”, which premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, “It’s the Rage”, with Gary Sinise, Giovanni Ribisi and Joan Allen, “Picking Up the Pieces”, “Six Days, Seven Nights”, “Apt Pupil”, “Kissing a Fool”, “The Pallbearer”, “Crossing the Bridge” and the critically acclaimed HBO film “Breast Men”.  He also directed the feature film “Since You’ve Been Gone” for Miramax, and has directed episodes of “Friends" and spin- off series "Joey".

David Grindley has most recently directed Kevin Spacey in “National Anthems” at the Old Vic Theatre, and David Haig and Paul Bradley in “Journey’s End” at the Comedy Theatre and Playhouse Theatre. His Olivier Award nominated revival of “Abigail’s Party” at the Hampstead Theatre in 2002 was a sell-out success and transferred to the New Ambassadors, before moving to the Whitehall Theatre and completing two National Tours. David was Resident Director at the Savoy Theatre in the West End from 1997 to 1998, and Resident Assistant Director at Chichester Festival Theatre in 1996 where he worked on “Uncle Vanya” and “When We Are Married”, both of which he accompanied to the West End.

“SOME GIRL(S)” is produced in London by Clare Lawrence and Anna Waterhouse for Out Of The Blue Productions and Nica Burns, Max Weitzenhoffer, and in association with Theatreshare plc.  Out of the Blue’s West End productions have been Kenneth Lonergan’s “This Is Our Youth” with casts including Matt Damon, Jake Gyllenhaal and Anna Paquin, David Mamet’s “Oleanna” with Julia Stiles and Aaron Eckhart, and currently Mamet’s “A Life In The Theatre” with Patrick Stewart and Joshua Jackson. Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer have most recently produced “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” with Christian Slater, Deborah Warner’s “Medea” with Fiona Shaw and “Feelgood” by Alistair Beaton.
