Eyre to helm ‘Flea’ revival at Old Vic

Spacey's theater unveils slate

Former National Theater supremo and screen helmer Richard Eyre (“Notes On A Scandal”) will helm Feydeau’s classic French farce “A Flea In her Ear” as part of the 2010-11 season at the Old Vic, the London theater topped by Kevin Spacey.

Eyre’s revival, starring Tom Hollander and Lisa Dillon and co-produced by Sonia Friedman Prods., runs from Dec. 4-Mar. 5 with a Dec. 14 opening.

Dillon also appears as the central character in the season opener “Design for Living” (Sept. 3-Nov. 27 with a Sept. 15 opening). Noel Coward’s comedy of bisexual manners is a co-production with Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer and also stars Andrew Scott, Tom Burke and Nancy Crane.

The season, the seventh under Spacey, concludes with “Cause Celebre” (Mar. 17-Jun. 11). Play, the swansong of Brit. playwright Terence Rattigan, is presented as part of the late scribe’s centenary.

Casting for the production, helmed by Thea Sharrock (“Equus”), has yet to be announced. Sharrock’s hit production of Rattigan’s earlier work “After the Dance,” currently in rep at the National Theater, is rumored to be eying a Gotham transfer.
