Claire Foy added to Macbeth cast list
Date Posted: 07/01/13
Claire Foy has been added to the cast list of Jamie Lloyd's forthcoming production of Macbeth.
The White Heat star will take on the role of Lady Macbeth in the play which takes place at Trafalgar Studios and will also feature BAFTA Award-winning actor James McAvoy.
Those planning to catch the show as part of theatre breaks in London should be aware that it gets underway on Saturday, February 9th, kicking off the Trafalgar Transformed season.
Director Jamie Lloyd said this would be "a season of politically-charged power plays on the doorstep of Whitehall" and added that he hoped it would "welcome new and diverse audiences to the West End".
It will be the first time that Foy has performed in London since her role in the Royal Court Theatre production, Love, Love, Love. She has also appeared in television shows such as Upstairs Downstairs, Little Dorrit, The Promise and The Night Watch, as well as the film Season of the Witch.
