Gillian Anderson makes a welcome West End return



Story by Jack Foley

FORMER X-Files star, Gillian Anderson, is returning to the West End in March, to appear in the first-run of The Sweetest Thing in Baseball, at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs.

The popular television star, dubbed as ‘the thinking man’s totty’ after she appeared in lacy black underwear on the cover of FHM, appeared before the capital’s theatre-goers last year, to great acclaim, in What The Night Is For.

The production will tell the story of a burnt-out artist, who ends up in a mental institution, when her latest exhibition flops. Having been hailed as the next great thing, the disappointment becomes too much and the resulting breakdown forces her to seek psychiatric help.

However, her insurance is only willing to shell out for ten days' care, so she draws upon the American baseball icon, Darryl Strawberry, to see her through.

Tickets go on sale from January 26, and the play, which opens on March 31, is only showing until May 1.
