Damian Lewis is to star in a new production of Edward Albee’s The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?.
Directed by Ian Rickson, the play will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from March 24 to June 24, with press night on April 5.
News of the production comes after it was announced that Imelda Staunton will star in Albee’s Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, opening next February.
Lewis was last seen on the West End stage in David Mamet’s American Buffalo. He will play the role of Martin in Albee’s play.
The show is produced by Matthew Byam Shaw, Nia Janis and Nick Salmon for Playful Productions, with Tom Kirdahy and Hunter Arnold.
Playwright Albee died in September aged 88.
