1st Night Photos: Pryce's Donmar Debut in Dimetos

By • West End
Jonathan Pryce made his Donmar Warehouse debut last night (25 March 2009, previews from 19 March) starring in the title role of Athol Fugard's rarely seen play Dimetos, directed by Donmar associate director and recent Olivier award winner Douglas Hodge.

Written in 1975, Dimetos is a moving story about love, guilt, retribution and faith in a modern world of moral decay. Exhausted with life in the city as a highly skilled engineer, Dimetos (Pryce) escapes to a remote coastal village with his niece and housekeeper in search of a simpler existence. Five years on, a stranger from the metropolis arrives to tempt him back with devastating consequences.

Starring alongside Pryce are Anne Reid, Alex Lanipekun and Holliday Grainger, making her professional stage debut. Dimetos continues until 9 May 2009.
