No SD due to Martin feeling unwell

Both Martin himself and the theatre’s security guard has informed us that he is not going to do stage door after the play due to feeling under the weather. Let’s hope for a speedy recovery. We saw him leaving through the front door, apologised for not being able to sign or take photos because he wasn’t feeling very well. Get well soon!

WHEN: October 3, 2017
WHY: Nothing shows you’re a menswear boss like plaid pants and a pair of tinted glasses.

‘Ghost Stories’ and ‘Cargo’ first reviews

This has been an important week for Martin! Besides de successful press night of Labour of Love, screenings of Ghost Stories and Cargo took place at the BFI London Film Festival and the Adelaide Film Festival respectively. Here are the first reviews:

The Guardian on Ghost Stories: ****

Whitehouse, Lawther and Freeman enjoy themselves greatly in their roles and give terrific support […] Freeman’s Mike is a smarmy piece of work on his country estate – and a nasty little anti-Semite whose casual jibes to Philip about “your lot” bring us closer to a terrible flashback that lives perennially in Philip’s own head.

Our London correspondent went to the second screening at the Empire Haymarket cinema and Martin was there!

The Reel Bits on Cargo: ****

Freeman leads an excellent cast, taking his unlikely trajectory as a leading man and focusing all of his energy on a singular focus.

Martin joined the cast of ‘Whither Would You Go?’

Martin Freeman has been cast as part of the off-one gala event Whither Would You Go? at the Harold Pinter Theatre on Sunday 22nd October, with all profits from ticket sales to go to the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR.

Directed by Jamie Lloyd (Richard III), the event will pair scenes from Shakespeare’s work, which will be read by the cast, with real-life stories from refugees around the world. It is inspired by the Bard’s speech from ‘The Book of Sir Thomas More’, which was written as a pleas for tolerance during the London riots of 1517.

Martin will be joined on-stage by Bertie Carvel, Lee Evans, James Norton, Jack Whitehall and Olivia Williams, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Wunmi Mosaku, and a special guest performance by actor and Syrian refugee, Jay Abdo.

Lloyd said:

When we focus on what we all have in common, we can start a conversation. With more than 65 million forcibly displaced people in the world – the highest levels ever recorded – we should be talking and we should be acting.

The event was created by Ella Smith and Emma West, who first held the production in Los Angeles to a sell-out audience in March, and plan further shows in New York and Sydney.
