Hollywood star Jude Law returns to stage
Hollywood star Jude Law is returning to the West End stage to play a sailor who falls in love with a prostitute.
The actor will appear in the Eugene O'Neill play Anna Christie at the Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden, central London, from August.
The play is part of a farewell season for the theatre's artistic director, Michael Grandage, who is leaving this year.
He said: "From next month to February 2012 we will be presenting six new productions and I am delighted this final year celebrates so much of the repertoire we have presented over the last decade."
Other plays in the season include a performance of William Shakespeare's Richard II and Inadmissible Evidence by John Osborne.
Law received rave reviews when he played Hamlet at the Donmar in 2009.
