Tom Burke and Hayley Atwell are teaming up for a new production of Henrik Ibsen’s Rosmersholm, which will open in London in May.
Burke will play Rosmer, a man haunted by history and living in a grand house owned by a powerful family. Atwell will play Rebecca West, who tries to undermine Rosmer’s idealism and get him to understand a more free-thinking way of life on the eve of a major election.
The production will be directed by Ian Rickson with further casting is to be announced soon.
It runs at Duke of York’s Theatre 2 May to 20 July, with previews from 24 April.
