Damian Lewis is making a wonderful comeback to stage in the West End revival of David Mamet’s American Buffalo this spring. He is headlining the play as Walter Cole “Teach” along with the great John Goodman as Don Dubrow, and Tom Sturridge as Bobby. Daniel Evans, whom Damian Lewis trained together with at Guildhall School of Music and Drama is directing the play.
Damian tells Guardian about how the stars aligned for American Buffalo: “I’ve tried about three or four times in the last couple of years and things have fallen apart. With theatre, you have to plan almost a year in advance. But we got lucky – a theatre was available.”
Damian has recently talked to Dr. John McGrath, one of the leading experts in the field of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) research. You can see the video of their conversation below, and find out about this terrible skin condition, the research to find a cure, and how the funds raised by Sohana Research Fund are directly going into clinical trials that could benefit a number of patients.
