LONDON (Reuters) - Hollywood actor Jude Law will return to the West End stage, appearing in Eugene O‘Neill’s “Anna Christie” at the Donmar Warehouse, the theater said.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning play, part of a farewell season for the Donmar’s artistic director Michael Grandage, will run from August 4 to October 8.
Law, who enjoyed a successful run on stage in the title role of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” in 2009, will play Mat Burke, a sailor who falls in love with the title character who is a former prostitute. Anna will be played by Ruth Wilson.
Other plays in the season include Shakespeare’s “Richard II” and “Inadmissible Evidence” by John Osborne.
