Date: 10 August 2011
The Donmar Warehouse's production of Anna Christie opened last night (9 August, previews from 4 August 2011) starring Ruth Wilson in the title role alongside Jude Law, Jenny Galloway and David Hayman.
Directed by Rob Ashford, Eugene O'Neill's 1921 Broadway play sees former prostitute Anna, who was exiled from her home as a child, reunited with the father who sent her away 15 years earlier and set sail in search of a new beginning. The production continues until 8 October 2011.
Joining the cast and crew to celebrate their opening night at London's Dial Bar, were guests including Shona Lindsay, Esther Hall and Alex Weaver as well as soon-to-be artistic director of the Donmar, Josie Rourke. The cast of Anna Christie also includes Paul Brightwell, Robert Lonsdale, Henry Pettigrew, Michael Walters and Matt Wilman.
