Alison Arnopp in Emma Rice's Malory Towers

Alison Arnopp plays Gwendoline Lacey in Wise Children's Malory Towers, directed by Emma Rice. The show is set to embark on a UK Tour and play London's Southbank Centre.

The windows shone. A green creeper climbed almost to the roof. It looked like an old-time castle. ‘My school!’ thought Darrell, and a little warm feeling came into her heart. ‘How lucky I am to be going to Malory Towers!’

Darrell Rivers is starting school with an eager mind and fierce heart. Unfortunately she also has a quick temper! Can she learn to tolerate the infuriating Gwendoline Lacey, or value the kind hearted Sally Hope? Can she save the school play and rescue terrified Mary Lou from the grip of a raging storm? If she can do these things anywhere, she will do them at Malory Towers!
