A Round-heeled Woman heads to the UK

28th June 2011

The stage adaptation of Jane Juska's acclaimed book A Round-heeled Woman is to make the transition to London following a successful run in the US.

The London version will star Sharon Gless, perhaps most famous for appearing in the TV detective show Cagney & Lacey, as a 67-year-old woman searching for liberation following her divorce.

Jane Prowse's adaptation of Juska's book received significant critical acclaim in the US when it premièred in San Francisco last year and is set to run at the Riverside Studios in west London from October 19th until November 20th.

Based on Juska's real-life search for love, the play documents her placing a personals ad in the New York Review of Books and the way in which she deals with the 63 replies she receives.

Gless is no stranger to the stage, having previously starred in an adaption of Stephen King's bestselling novel Misery and Neil Simon's drama Chapter Two.
