Best Follows Chekhov with O'Neill, Shakespeare & Ibsen???
Date: 18 August 2003
Fans of actress Eve Best, currently playing Masha in Katie Mitchell's critically acclaimed production of Three Sisters at the National, will be pleased to know they'll have several more opportunities to see her onstage in the near future. Following the Chekhov, Best will stay on at the NT Lyttelton to appear, alongside Helen Mirren and her Three Sisters co-star Paul Hilton, in Howard Davies' revival of Eugene O'Neill's Mourning Becomes Electra, which joins the repertory in late November 2003 (See News, 13 Jun 2003). After that, as she reveals in today's 20 Questions interview, she'll return to the Young Vic to play Rosalind in David Lan's production of As You Like It. The Shakespeare is slated for spring 2004. Further ahead, Lan - the Young Vic artistic director who cast Best opposite Jude Law in 1999's 'Tis Pity She's a Whore, for which she won both the Critics' Circle and Evening Standard awards for Best Newcomer - aims to help Best fulfil her ambition of playing Hedda Gabler, also at the Young Vic.
