From Catwalk to Centre Stage

Agyness Deyn takes to the stage in her West End Debut the Leisure Society.

Last night Deyn faced an altogether different audience to the catwalk front row that she's used to.

The supermodel added yet another string to her bow in her superb West End stage press debut, in a play called the Leisure Society at the Trafalgar Studios.

Directed by Harry Burton, the play has received rave reviews and includes a stellar cast, including Ed Stoppard.

The play is about a rich and unhappily married couple, who invite their happily divorced friend round to 'break-up' with him, but he arrives with 21-year-old Paula (played by Deyn). The foursomes interactions become increasingly debauched and downright complicated with the audience drawn in to the drama in the intimate (for a West End play) 98-seat studio.

On her career’s new direction, Deyn said, ‘it was so exciting with the energy of the play and the cast; it’s just a great experience. The audience add to the play giving it a heightened situation...it’s a really intimate experience for both us, and the audience – and I loved that intimate vibe.’

Speaking from the after party at the Corinthia Hotel in a floor length red Joseph dress she said, ‘to focus on, and to be doing something I’ve wanted to do for so long is just great’.

Leisure Society is on until March 31, so book your tickets sharpish.
