Timothée Chalamet is set to star in 4000 Miles by Amy Herzog, as part of Matthew Warchus’ fifth season at the Old Vic.
He will play Leo, alongside Eileen Atkins as his grandmother Vera, directed by Warchus.
Warchus said: “Amy Herzog is one of my favourite living writers – she writes with a deceptively powerful simplicity, full of extraordinary grace, precision and radiance.
“I’m very much looking forward to working with this exceptional cast on her gorgeous play which abounds with intimate beauty and truth.”
The show will open on April 16, 2020 with previews from 6 April.
