Bush to Stage World Premiere of Wilson s Sabina
Date: 14 January 1998
West London fringe venue the Bush Theatre will stage the world premiere of Snoo Wilson's latest play, Sabina, next month. This will be the prolific playwright's 11th play for the Bush and his first since Darwin's Flood in 1994. Sabina also marks the return to the stage of Paul McGann, British film star famous for his role in the cult classic Withnail and I. His latest film, Fairy Story, in which he co-stars with Peter O'Toole and Harvey Keitel is soon to be released. Sabina is McGann's first appearance at the Bush and his first theatrical role in 13 years. Sabina explores the relationship between Carl Jung, played by McGann, and his 18-year-old patient Sabina Spielrein. Meeting and swiftly curing the beautiful and brilliant Sabina sets Jung off on a radical departure from his mentor Sigmund Freud. The relationship also acts as a catalyst for his burgeoning belief in the paranormal and his taste for forbidden love. Sabina opens Monday, 9 February with previews from 5 February.
