Bonnie Wright to make stage debut in “The Moment of Truth”
Bonnie Wright, who portrayed Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter film franchise, will be making her stage debut as she is set to star as The Girl in Peter Ustinov’s The Moment of Truth at London’s Southwark Playhouse beginning next month.
According to Playbill, the play is a revival of Ustinov’s play that has not been on stage since 1951 and deals with the mechanics of toppling governments, the pretences of war, and the power of propaganda.
Bonnie Wright announced her debut on Twitter earlier today with the following tweet:
