Apparently she hasn't been on since February ! Crikey hope she is ok !

I saw her towards the end of March - didn't think she was very good at all so will be great to see somebody new! (new for me anyway)

If Louise Plowright has already left then they'll be putting Harriet in as soon as she is ready, she'll need a week or two for rehearsal and costumes altered if needed.

I say it could be this week depending on how long ago she had been asked to come back, considering Louise P hasn't been on in quite a while.

having played the part before she may not need that long a rehearsal time.

Shame as Louise Plowright is usually brilliant so wonder why she has been off so much

Do we know for certain that Louise is leaving early? If not, it could be the start of tour/cast change news leaking through, though it does seem extremely early for that.

Tour kicks off September which means rehearsals must start July/early August time at the latest so its not that early really to have your leads cast.  She is a bit of a name from her TV work and has done the chat shows etc before so she would be a good choice if its for the tour

According to website, Harriet starts in May. Sad to see Louise has had to discontinue. She's a fantastic performer and obviously her illness has taken its toll. Here's to a quick a full recovery!
