Australian acting legend Cate Blanchett will be starring in a brand-new play at the National Theatre in London! The play will be directed by the legendary Martin Crimp, who has been wowing crowds all over London since the 80s.
The name is quite a mouthful – When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other: Twelve Variations On Samuel Richardson’s Pamela – but it should prove to be a success as everything else that Crimp gets involved with. The play will focus on aspects of Pamela, which was a controversial 18th century story with many dark sexual and deviant themes.
Blanchett, who has made a name for herself across a long career on the big screen with credits in Blue Jasmine, The Lord of the Rings, and Carol, also has plenty of stage experience, and may be the perfect lead to open for Crimp’s production. She is a versatile actor who knows how to portray darker characters and embrace a variety of themes, so many people are looking forward to seeing her performance in this brand-new play.
In collaborating with Crimp, we are given two extremely talented artists who should put together a performance that will be hard to forget. When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other will open in January of 2019, and we are still awaiting more details which will be released when tickets go on sale sometime this Autumn.
