Richard Armitage in Mistery of "Use Me As Your Cardigan" from 2002

This is almost a year when I found mention about "some" Richard Armitage in Theatre Play "Use Me As Your Cardigan" in 2002 (year of Sparkhouse). And I didn't know if this is Our Fav Fellow.

On This site (now not working) HERE was that Use Me As Your Cardigan is produced as part of the 10xTen Festival. And there was "seductively free living Jez (Richard Armitage) when doctor husband Dan (Tim Hyam) heads off on his nightshift." I'm sorry I don't have more. :-/

So maybe about this play:

"Use Me As Your Cardigan" was written by Samantha Ellis. Her Blog HERE :)

Year ago was:
WORK: Use Me As Your Cardigan
I didn't want a child. My biological clock was not ticking. I never put a cushion up my jumper. You were so into it, you even got empathy pains. Dan wanted a baby. Stacy didn't. Most accidents happen in the home. This bitter sweet comedy takes a sly look at postnatal depression.

On DOOLLEE page of Mrs Ellis HERE is "A dark comedy about postnatal depression." And probably is mistake in company name.


On some site with Alexia Bertsatos We can see that HERE, we have a little from reviews about set design in newspapers "Theatre production ‘Use me as your cardigan’ written by Samantha Ellis and directed by Gavin McAlinden. (Very good reviews for the set design in Time Out, What’s On and the Irish Press."

And the best part of it is FACEBOOK Page of  Charm Offensive HERE where is poster with very interesting discription by Gavin McAlinden: "Old show poster from 2002. Great piece of new writing from Samantha Ellis - one of the first leads played by Richard Armitage who I believe has just been cast in The Hobbit." (from 27 March 2011).


 Well... I'm in shock myself :D

"A review of the 'Cardigan' play.

'Use Me As Your Cardigan' Jackson's Lane;Theatre Fringe

BYLINE: Sarah Adams

SECTION: Pg. 154

It's a mark of the success of Samantha Ellis's new play about baby blues that the problems faced by a young mother, deeply depressed eight weeks after the protracted birth of her son Adam, should elicit our sympathy without an overdose of bleakness. And the buzz generated by the Charm Offensive at Jackson's Lane is that rare combination of subject matter well targeted without pandering to its audience: what happens when young urbanites suddenly find their freedom thwarted?

But it's the humane, generous performances that really hook us in. Stacey (Imogen Butler-Cole) plays an ex-dancer turned morose mum, left in the hands of hard-nosed cousin Molly (Joanne Bending) and seductively free-living Jez (Richard Armitage) when doctor husband Dan (Tim Hyam) heads off on his night-shift. These actors stamp their mark so impressively, you wish they'd collaborated on the script. For if Ellis's dialogue is packed with sharp one-liners ('you're not my type, you're married with a kid'), it has a habit of scratching at insights, making speakers sound more functional ('we don't click any more') than sincere. And, rather like the cardigan of the title - a woolly metaphor for the comfort we seek in others - the themes remain underdeveloped, particularly as the spiral of events proves fragmented and inconclusive. Still, Gavin McAlinden's production crackles in Alexia Bertsatou's convincing north London flat, and Ellis's promise is more than embryonic."
