Newton revives ‘Death and the Maiden’

West End production opens in October

Thandie Newton (“Beloved,” “Crash”) will topline the first West End revival of Ariel Dorfman’s 1990 political thriller “Death and the Maiden.”

The production previews Oct. 13 ahead of an Oct. 24 opening at the Comedy theater.

Produced by Creative Management and Prods. (CMP) and Lyndi Adler, the play will be helmed by rising star Jeremy Herrin (“Spur of the Moment,” Globe Theater’s “Much Ado About Nothing”), who is currently in rehearsal for David Hare’s forthcoming new drama, “South Downs.”

Dorfman’s play was first produced by the Royal Court Theater before a yearlong West End run, a Gotham run helmed by Mike Nichols starring Glenn Close, Richard Dreyfuss and Gene Hackman, and a screen version helmed by Roman Polanski starring Sigourney Weaver.
