Playbill is reporting that Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown) is set to star in J.M. Barrie’s Mary Rose in London. It will begin performances at Studio 3 at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith March 28, prior to an official opening March 30, for a run through April 28.

the play is set in a Sussex manor house where a ghost keeps watch, yearning for the return of her beloved boy. It is described as a supernatural story of love, lost innocence and the parallel world where our departed ones are still present, just beyond reach.

This production, directed by Matthew Parker and featuring original music composed by Maria Haik Escudero that will be performed live, has an ensemble cast of 16, including Joanna Watt, Charlie Kerson, Nicholas Hoad, Phil Bishop, Alec Gray, Sally Preston, Philippa George, Ariel Harrison and Maya Thomas, with more to be announced.

Additionally, Multitude Media have emailed to let us know about Project Amstel. Jessie has been following Simon Amstell in the lead up to his new tour and has put together a series of videos where she tries to convince Simon of the merits of social media. They met during the filming of the second series of Grandma’s House, which airs later in the spring.

Jessie has been a very busy girl lately with many upcoming projects: She will appear next on TV in the second series of Simon Amstell’s “Grandma’s House” for the BBC and in Mike Newell’s film adaptation of “Great Expectations,” playing Biddy. She will also be presenting a one-woman show Bookworm at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.
