Andrew Scott to star in UK premiere of The Dazzle
Richard Greenberg's play will run in new central London venue FOUND111
The production - directed by Simon Evans - will feature Scott alongside David Dawson (The Duchess of Malfi) and opens on 15 December for a strictly limited season until 30 January 2016. Further casting will be announced shortly.
The Dazzle is a co-production between Michael Grandage Company and Emily Dobbs Productions and continues Grandage's tradition of offering affordable access to his productions, with £10 ticket will be available for all performances.
According to press materials, the play - which won an Outer Critics Circle Award when it opened in New York in 2000 - takes place in New York City at the beginning of the 20th Century. "Two brothers sit in their home surrounded by 136 tons of hoarded junk. When a beautiful guest arrives, everybody's lives are thrown into sharp focus."
Scott - who stars in the latest Bond film, Spectre, opening on Monday - was last seen on stage in Simon Stephens' Birdland at the Royal Court. His other theatre credits include Aristocrats, Emperor and Galilean (National Theatre) and A Girl in a Car with a Man (Royal Court) for which he won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre in 2005.
FOUND111 is a new venture at 111 Charing Cross Road - the original site of the Central St Martins School of Art - launched by Emily Dobbs Productions and Rachel Edwards for Tooting Arts Club, whose production of Barbarians is currently running at the venue until 7 November.
