Helen Hunt is set to tread the boards in London later this year, starring in Eureka Day at the The Old Vic.
The play is set during a mumps outbreak in California in 2017, as the school community weighs up questions of vaccination.
It opens at the Old Vic on 6th September and runs until 31st October.
“Written in 2017, incredibly, before the Covid pandemic, Jonathan Spector’s Eureka Day is a very funny, clever and thought-provoking new play set amidst the panic of a highly contagious virus,” said the venue’s artistic director, Matthew Warchus.
“I had the privilege of working with Helen Hunt almost 20 years ago on the Broadway transfer of Yasmina Reza’s Life x 3 – it’s truly a joy welcoming her to the Old Vic for this spectacular production.”
