Jude Law has signed up to return to the London stage this summer following his triumph in Hamlet for the Donmar in the West End and on Broadway.
The Oscar-nominated actor will star with award-winning Ruth Wilson in American playwright Eugene O’Neill’s ferocious drama Anna Christie, about a battered young woman.
After becoming a prostitute — and being raped by a cousin when she was a teenager — Anna finds redemption and, perhaps, love with Mat, who is described as handsome ‘in a hard, defiant way’, and who works as a stoker on a canal barge.
