Posted in festivals, grapes of wrath, theatre with tags , , , , , , , , , on 10 April, 2010 by ambarussa

Please have a look at photographer Geraint Lewis‘ online gallery, and be prepared to stay for a while. Maybe you’d like to start with the portraits (including the late Malcolm McLaren, Anna Chancellor, Alan Cummings and Christopher Ecclestone, to name but a few) or New York?

There’s also a collection of his pictures of “The Grapes of Wrath”, the production in which Damian O’Hare played Tom Joad. 62 pictures of the cast, probably taken during rehearsals for Chichester Festival Theatre last summer.

Just click picture and link below.

No release date for the UK has been communicated yet. Also, Damian’s not turning up on any casting list, but considering that a critic complained about the “(…) Irish colleague (…) failing to do a convincing accent (…)” (No doubt.) he should be in there. Somewhere.

(Anyone up for a bet that his character will die two minutes into the movie?)
