News   U.S. Playwright Gary Lennon to Make British Debut with Hampstead Theatre Production of .45
 
U.S. stage and screenwriter Gary Lennon will make his British theatrical debut with a production of his play .45 to be staged at Hampstead Theatre's studio Downstairs space, beginning performances Nov. 2 for a run through Nov. 27.

Directed by fellow American Wilson Milam, who was Tony-nominated in 2006 for his production of Martin McDonagh's The Lieutenant of Inishmore that he also staged at the RSC, the play is described in press materials as a "fast-paced tale of revenge set in New York's Hell's Kitchen" in the summer heatwave of 1977. The play "revolves around Pat, who is Ed's girl. He deals guns so she can live the American dream. And Ed wants more. The only problem is that she wants out. She has grown tired of waiting for Ed to maker her dreams come true, so she executes an elaborate plan of revenge."

Lennon's writing credits include the series "The Shield," "The Unusuals" and "Justified." The cast comprises Daniel Caltagirone, Natalie Dormer, Chris Reilly, Katie Wimpenny and Emma Powell.
