Carl Barât makes theatre debut with Sadie Frost

Former Libertine stars in 'Fool For Love'

Carl Barât has made his theatre debut this week, starring in Fool For Love alongside Sadie Frost at London‘s Riverside Studios.

The former Libertines singer/guitarist, playing the character of Eddie, took to the stage for the first time on Tuesday (January 26), with a press showing taking place last night (January 28).

The play, in which Frost plays the part of May, was written by Sam Shepard and first performed in 1983. This new production was directed by Neil Sheppeck.

“Something goes wrong every night,” Barât laughed to NME.COM before last night’s show. “Last night I kicked a load of shit over. That’s alright, there was nothing terminal. Also, I have to lasso a fucking chair and I keep missing.”

Fool For Love is being performed at Riverside until March 21. See next week’s NME (out February 3) for a behind-the-scenes report from the play and photos.
