Rickman, Duncan, Shaw star in ‘Borkman’

Abbey production tipped for U.S. run

The 2010-11 season at Dublin’s Abbey Theater will include a revival of Henrik Ibsen’s “John Gabriel Borkman” that stars Alan Rickman, Fiona Shaw and Lindsay Duncan.

Production, helmed by James Macdonald (“Top Girls,” “Dying City”), will also play the U.S. in January 2011, although dates and venue are not yet announced. Scribe Frank McGuinness provides a new version of the play about a cash-strapped family.

In addition, the 2007 Abbey offering “Terminus” will have a 2011 Stateside tour that kicks off in Boston.

Also on tap at the Abbey is Caryl Churchill’s version of August Strindberg’s “A Dream Play,” along with world preems of Carmel Winters’ “B for Baby” and two plays written and directed by Paul Mercier, “The Passing” and “The East Pier,” among other shows on the bill.

Most recent Gotham stage credit for Rickman was a Brooklyn Academy of Music run of the Donmar Warehouse production of “Creditors,” which Rickman directed. Duncan, who toplined the Main Stem preem of “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” with Rickman, also appeared with the actor in a 2002 Roundabout revival of “Private Lives.” Shaw’s recent New York stints include the 2008 BAM run of “Happy Days.”
