Great news for Rupert Grint fans came from Snitchseeker last night. He has been confirmed for Mojo! Previously we reported that Rupert was allegedly in talks to star on the West End stage in this gangster play, but now the redhead has been confirmed to have signed in and will appear at the Harold Pinter theatre from October 26th!
Tickets (limited according to the Website) don't go on sale til September, but one can sign up to be in line for cheaper preview tickets here.
The play is summarised as follows:
Set against the fledgling rock ‘n’ roll scene of 50s Soho, this savagely funny play delves into the sleazy underworld and power games of London’s most infamous district.
Rupert is, according to RupertGrintUS to play Sweets. Not much is known about the size of the role except for these tidbits from Snitchseeker:
- a pill-popping petty crook.
- minor hood called Sweets who pops amphetamines like Smarties and does a sort of double act, full of comic menace, with Mays, as a character called Potts.
