The 28-year-old model will appear as Paula, a ‘promiscuous free spirit’ invited to a yuppie couple’s dinner party in The Leisure Society. The comedy opens at Trafalgar Studios in March 2012.
Deyn’s first stage role follows a major part in Pusher, a drug-land drama due for cinematic release next year. She also made a cameo in as Greek goddess Aphrodite in last year’s Clash of the Titans.
‘When I did Pusher in the summer, it was like: this is what I'm supposed to be doing,’ the ELLE cover star told the Evening Standard.
‘I just loved it so much and it excites me to be able to do it. I want to do it as much as possible—film, theatre, everything.’
