The beauty added height to her frame with a dainty pair of gold mules and posed up a storm for the photographers. 

The Pillowman follows Katurian as she is brutally questioned by authorities after a spate of murders bear similarities to her short stories. 

Starring opposite Steve Pemberton, who plays Tupolski and Matthew Tennyson, who stars as Michael, Lily takes the role that was played by David Tennant twenty years ago.

The black comedy ‘examines the role of the artist in society and asks what price do we pay for freedom of expression’, according to a synopsis on the play’s website.

Speaking about The Pillowman’s discussions around censorship, Lily said the play raises a lot of questions about freedom of speech and the internet.

She said: ‘There’s a bit of violence in it. She’s an artist and writer and that’s something I relate to. She definitely pushes boundaries. There was a lot for me to tap into.’

Lily, who is used to performing as a singer, told how she likes the settled nature of starring in a theatrical production.

The black comedy, which is ‘widely regarded as one of the greatest plays of the past 25 years’, will be running at the Duke of York Theatre in London until early next month.

 It comes after the theatre was evacuated on Wednesday halfway through the performance.

Audience members were rushed outside by security and reported that a fire engine soon arrived on the scene.

Several ticket holders spoke of their confusion after the play was halted, with one saying: ‘Lily rushed off stage – everyone thought it was a scary part of the play, but it turns out it was real.’

However, the incident was soon dealt with and the audience allowed back in as the play recommenced.
