After weeks of rehearsals in London (pictures) the cast of ‘Utopia‘ moved to Newcastle last week for the final tech rehearsal (pictures 1, 2). Tomorrow, Wednesday, is the first official performance. Best of luck to Sophia Myles & the whole cast and crew!
There are still tickets available to see Sophia perform live on stage in Newcastle until June 16 before they move to the Soho Theatre in London on June 20.
To find out more about the play check out our extensive info page in the projects section.

Tomorrow is the first day of the 60th Berlin International Film Festival. To celebrate the anniversary a number of special events and exhibitions are planned and there’s also a special section on their website. As you may know Sophia Myles attended the film festival in 2007 when her movie ‘Hallam Foe‘ had its world premiere there.
The Berlinale star portraits, taken by our photographer Gerhard Kassner and signed by the portrayed stars before their gala premieres at the Berlinale Palast, are familiar to every Festival goer. As part of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Berlinale, a selection of the 812 portraits taken since 2003 will be displayed in a comprehensive photo exhibition in public space throughout Berlin in numerous City Light Poster display cases.
This portrait of Sophia was taken on February 16, 2007 at 2.22 pm. See some screencaptures of Sophia signing the portrait here.
I’m really sorry for the lack of updates recently. But I’ve thoroughly been enjoying summer and being out & about with friends and it’s also been rather quiet in the Sophia world. Well, thanks to Sarika from Rachel Hurd-Wood Web we have a new outtake from the 2007 portrait session for Stella magazine. Sophia Myles and the other actresses are striking some funky rockstar poses – a must-see!
