She shot to stardom in 2020, earning the admiration of households up and down the UK (and further afield) for her portrayal of Princess Diana in season 4 of Netflix's The Crown, now Emma Corrin is making her West End debut in Anna X, one of three plays in the Harold Pinter Theatre’s reopening season.
Anna X is a new play by writer Joseph Charlton, whose previous show Brilliant Jerks earned positive reviews in the nationals when it ran at VAULT Festival in 2018. Directed by Daniel Raggett (The Human Voice), Anna X is set in the elite world of New York City’s fashion shows, private parties and exclusive openings – a world which fresh-faced workers Anna (Corrin) and Ariel (breakthrough artist Nabhaan Rizwan) are struggling to keep up with. The fact the story is a fictional imagining inspired by real events, makes it all the more intriguing.
Anna X is the third and final instalment of The Harold Pinter Theatre’s reopening season Reemerge. It follows on from Amy Berryman’s debut play Walden, which stars Gemma Arterton and is being directed by Ian Rickson (Jerusalem, Uncle Vanya), and Yasmin Joseph’s Notting Hill Carnival-set play J’Ouvert.
