McCormack to appear in Kureishi's world premiere



Story by Paul Nelson

ACTRESS Catherine McCormack, who has appeared in Braveheart and Spy Games, will team up with Michael Pennington, for the world premiere of Hanif Kureishi’s latest play, When The Night Begins, at the Hampstead Theatre, on March 11, 2004.

The psychological thriller will run for five-weeks at the north London venue and follows the recently widowed Jane, as she seeks out a man from her childhood, in a south London high-rise.

The ensuing take is said to blur the lines between victim and aggressor.

 

Aside from her high-profile turns alongside the likes of Mel Gibson and Brad Pitt, McCormack is will also be familiar to film fans for her roles in This Year's Love, Land Girls, and The Tailor of Panama, though, recently, she has turned her attentions to the West End, where notable performances have included Anna Weiss, A Lie of the Mind and Under The Curse.

Pennington, meanwhile, is a co-founder of the English Shakespeare Company, and has toured the world playing many leading Shakespearean roles.

Most recently, in the West End, he has appeared in The Guardsman, An Ideal Husband and Gross Indecency.

The production is the latest work from the mind of author, Hanif Kureishi, who produced the screenplays for My Beautiful Laundrette and London Kills Me, as well as the award-winning novels,

The Buddha of Suburbia and Intimacy.

It will be directed by Hampstead artistic director, Anthony Clark, with lighting by Paul Pyant, and fight direction by Terry King.
