‘Ruined’ heads to London’s Almeida

Bergman adaptation also among 2010 slate

The European preem of “Ruined” and a new legit adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s “Through a Glass Darkly” are among the offerings on tap for the spring 2010 lineup at London’s Almeida Theater.

“Ruined,” Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer-winner about women in the Congo, will be helmed in Blighty by Indhu Rubasingham, who previously directed a London staging of Nottage’s play “Fabulation.” Jenny Jules and Lucian Msamati star in the production, which runs April 15-June 5.

Andrew Upton, the scribe and co-a.d. of the Sydney Theater Company, pens the adaptation of “Glass Darkly,” to be directed by Almeida a.d. Michael Attenborough. Based on the 1961 movie written and directed by Bergman, story centers on the interior world of a schizophrenic woman recently released from an asylum. Production plays June 10-July 31.

Also on the Almeida slate for the spring is a previously announced production of “Measure for Measure,” helmed by Attenborough and playing Feb. 12-April 10.
