Helen Mirren to return to the London stage

Helen Mirren is heading back to the West End to star alongside Mark Strong in a new production of Oedipus.

Venue and dates haven’t yet been confirmed, but it’s expected to run in late 2020.

Plague has struck the city of Thebes. Good King Oedipus sends for a prophet who determines that an unsolved murder is the cause of the gods’ displeasure- and Oedipus is the killer.

What follows is an unsettling investigation of the past, which begins at a three-way crossroad and ends in a moment of horrifying self-discovery.

Mirren was last on the London stage in 2013 when she starred as Queen Elizabeth in The Audience.
