‘Vertical Hour’ set for London run

Play closed three weeks early on Broadway

The U.K. preem of the David Hare play “The Vertical Hour” gets a run at London’s Royal Court in January.

Jeremy Herrin will direct Indira Varma (“Rome”) in the lead role of Nadia, a former war reporter who becomes entangled in a thorny political debate with her boyfriend’s father.

When “Vertical Hour” preemed on Broadway in 2006, it earned generally unfavorable reviews and closed three weeks early, but nonetheless managed to recoup its $2.6 million capitalization costs. That production, helmed by Sam Mendes, starred Julianne Moore and Bill Nighy.

“Vertical Hour” is the first Hare show in seven years to play the Court, which also has produced the Brit scribe’s plays “My Zinc Bed” and “Via Dolorosa,” among others.

“Hour” runs at the Court Jan. 17-March 1, 2008, with a press opening set for Jan. 22.
