Jessica Chastain is to make her UK theatre debut in the West End production of A Doll’s House, as part of the Jamie Lloyd Company’s new season.
Chastain will lead the cast in Frank McGuinness’s version of Henrik Ibsen’s play, which runs from June 10 to September 5, 2020 at the Playhouse in London.
Jamie Lloyd said: “our aim is to work with the most exceptional actors in the world, offering them new and unexpected challenges. Jessica Chastain is a gifted artist and is, of course, well known and respected for her extraordinary screen performances.”
“However, I’m delighted she is now returning to the stage – where her career began – in this bold reappraisal of Ibsen’s great masterpiece.”
The production is designed by Soutra Gilmour, and is produced by Ambassador Theatre Group. Further casting is yet to be announced.
