Wanamaker attends musical premiere

Actress Zoe Wanamaker was among a number of stars attending the premiere of Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown in London this week.

The Harry Potter star arrived in a white scarf - contrasting with her black ensemble - for the musical which tells the story of Pepa, who tries to find her ex-boyfriend Ivan after he breaks up with her via an answerphone message.

However, Pepa's journey does not lead her to Ivan but eventually to his wife and child, as well as his new girlfriend.

The musical is based on Spanish director Pedro Almodovar's 1988 film of the same title, which was nominated for the Foreign Language Oscar.

It has been adapted for the stage by Jeffrey Lane and David Yazbek, who previously brought The Full Monty and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels to the stage.

Ivan is played by French actor Jerome Proton, while Haydn Gwynne stars as Ivan's ex-wife Lucia and Ricardo Afonso appears as the narrator and taxi driver.
