Trelawny of the Wells
Role Ferdinand Gadd
In February 2013 Daniel Mays opened in Joe Wright's production of Trelawny of the Wells at the Donmar Warehouse.
The play, by Arthur Wing Pinero and set in 1860s London, follows a host of theatrical characters and is often described as Pinero's "love letter" to the theatre.
Daniel Mays plays Ferdinand Gadd, a leading actor of his time and a friend of Rose Trelawny, whose immienent departure from the stage devastates her close-knit theatrical circle.
