New albeit old pictures of some of Eddie’s theatre productions have surfaced (thanks to Nadia!). The pictures which you can now find in our gallery were taken by Simon Annand and show Eddie about to go on stage for the two Michael Grandage productions he did at the Donmar Warehouse: “Red” in 2009 and “Richard II” in 2011 as well as backstage pictures from Dominic Cooke’s “Now or Later” in 2008 at the Royal Court. Enjoy!

As I mentioned in the last update, we got some pretty neat stuff to add to the site in the next few days/weeks. Today’s update has to do with Eddie’s portrayal of John Jr in the theatre production “Now or Later” which ran in the Royal Court theatre in London from September 3rd until October 18th in 2008.

Here’s the synopsis to perhaps refresh our minds!

On the eve of a US election, the gay son of the Democratic presidential candidate goes to a party dressed as Muhammad. His dad’s supporters think he should apologise before video material becomes public. The boy argues he was acting in the interests of free speech, to expose a fellow student who wanted to censor satire directed at Islam. But he’s also rebelling because of his family history: even his birth, he claims, was a media-sensitive decision by his parents.

I have added quite a handful of pictures of Eddie during the press photocall. Enjoy!
