Party Of The Week: Young at art mix it up with oldies
Friday 21 August 2009
The Scream actress Neve Campbell arrived with her actor husband John Light for the opening night of Tits/Teeth at the Soho Theatre, in London – before attending the after-party.
The two plays about cosmetic surgery and body dysmorphia, opened The National Youth Theatre's (NYT) new season on Monday night.
It is the first of three double bills, Six Pack, all of which opened this week. Eye/Balls is about student debt and then a stag night while the plays Foot/Mouth, both examine politically correct language and media reactions to it.
The party took place upstairs in the theatre's studio, where the former Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis, who is the mother of pop singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, turned up for a drink.
The television presenters, Gaby Roslin and Liza Tarbuck, the daughter of Jimmy Tarbuck, chatted to the NYT cast members, including the stars of Tits/Teeth, Gwyneth Keyworth and Sophie Ward, its director, Anna Niland and the playwright, Michael Wynne.
The NYT is now in its 53rd year – with alumni including Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig and Catherine Tate – for these budding actors, the sky's the limit.
