Cattrall will play a 55 year old woman who realises her life has hit a dead end in the Penelope Skinner play.
Kim Cattrall will be return to the London stage later this year, to star in a new play about a woman experiencing a mid-life crisis. Linda, written by Penelope Skinner, will run at the Royal Court Theatre in London’s Sloane Square with previews beginning on November 25th before opening on December 1st.
Kim Cattrall is returning to the London stage this fall.
The actress who is best known for the role of Samantha Jones in HBO series ‘Sex and the City’ will star as Linda, a beauty company marketing executive with two daughters who realises her life has hit a dead end at 55. Linda will be directed by Michael Longhurst, who recently worked on Nick Payne’s play Constellations.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Vicky Featherstone, Royal Court’s artistic director, described Linda as a darkly comic drama, where the heroine had believed she was making the world a better place for other women. ‘Linda won awards for a campaign which was about redefining beauty for ordinary women,’ Featherstone said.
‘But it dawns on her that her daughters have not turned out to be young feminists, her husband is distant and a younger version of herself — but without her ideals — is after her job.’
Featherstone also described 58 year old Cattrall as, ‘brilliantly fierce about not being a young woman any more … and not fierce in a vain way’. She also added that the actress, has 'taken control of her life and is not sitting back' and has refused to let Hollywood to define her.
Liverpool-born Cattrall last appeared on the London stage when she starred in Sweet Bird Of Youth at the Old Vic Theatre two years ago. Most recently Cattrall has appeared on the small screen in Canadian comedy ‘Sensitive Skin’ which was recently renewed for a second season.
