Alastair Mackenzie to appear on London Stage Starting in November

Some truly good news today, as Alastair Mackenzie (Monarch of the Glen) will take a turn on the London stage this November. Playbill reports Sigma's co-founder and producer will star in the theatrical production of Michael Wynne's The Priory along with newly cast actress Charlotte Riley at London's Royal Court Theatre, with "beginning performances Nov. 19 (prior to an official opening Nov. 26), for a run to Jan. 9, 2010, in the mainhouse Jerwood Theatre Downstairs." Showtimes, pricing available here and here via Royal Court

The article continues:

"The Priory, in which they both appear, is described in press materials as a buoyant new comedy that takes a microscope to modern dilemmas abut life, love and retro board games. In the play, Kate is delighted when she finds a country retreat that ticks all the boxes. Gathering together a select group of her closest friends to celebrate New Year's Eve, she is keen to start 2010 afresh. But successful, stressed-out thirtysomethings in search of a good time in the sticks can make for one very fearsome party — and some surprising resolutions.

The play is directed by Jeremy Herrin, designed by Robert Innes Hopkins, with lighting by Neil Austin, sound and music by Nick Powell and costume by Robert Innes Hopkins and Iona Kenrick."

BRAVO! I cant wait as I will be in the UK for the holidays so this is fabulous news!
