Rigg heads ‘Honour’s’ West End debut

Australian play returns to London

Diana Rigg will lead the West End premiere of Joanna Murray-Smith’s “Honour,” which opens Feb. 14 at Wyndham’s for a 13-week run. (Previews start Feb. 7.)

The PW Prods. stand comes three years after the Australian scribe’s play was first seen at the National Theater.

Rigg will play the pivotal part of Honor, the wife whose husband of 32 years abruptly walks out on her for a younger woman. The cast includes Martin Jarvis and Natascha McElhone, with the remaining role of the couple’s daughter still to be cast.

Director is David Grindley, who revived Joe Orton’s “What the Butler Saw” for PW last summer and is in talks to make his Broadway debut in the spring with World War I play “Journey’s End,” currently running on the West End.

“Honour” was seen on Broadway briefly in 1998, with Jane Alexander, Robert Foxworth and Laura Linney among the cast.
