Fans of the hit television series Lost, or even movies like The Sixth Sense, will see some familiar faces take to the stage of the Vaudeville Theatre in 2011 as Matthew Fox and Olivia Williams appear in Neil LaBute’s new play In a Forest Dark and Deep. It will be the latest opportunity for London theatre audiences to witness a show that feature some stars of the screen, following on from previous shows such as The Rise and Fall of Little Voice starring Diana Vickers at the same venue in 2009. But it will be one of many in 2011, with others such as The Children’s Hour set to appear at the Comedy Theatre.
But with In a Forest Dark and Deep audiences will be a witnessing a production that comes from the pen of the famous playwright Neil LaBute, who previously brought Fat Pig to the Comedy Theatre in 2008 and whose career has also included various movies and television shows. The work of the American playwright has been seen on both sides of the Atlantic, with other credits that include reasons to be pretty and In a Dark Dark House, amongst others.
However, In a Forest Dark and Deep sees him present a story with compelling characters and full of hidden mysteries as we follow Bobby (Fox) and Betty (Williams), who meet one another in order to clear out a cabin - owned by Betty - deep in the woods. What should be a regular task soon turns into something else altogether as it becomes clear that nothing is at it seems within the cabin and that there are many hidden truths and secrets that are waiting to come out into the open.
Matthew Fox remains best known to audiences for his role as Dr Jack Shephard in the hit American television series Lost. However, those with theatre tickets may also recognise him from a host of other productions that include the movies Speed Racer, Vantage Point and Party of Five, as well as the television shows Wings and Haunted. In a Forest Dark and Deep will therefore be his West End debut.
Meanwhile, Olivia Williams is an English actress whose credits include The Sixth Sense and X-Men: The Last Stand, amongst others. For the stage her previous credits include Love’s Labour’s Lost at The National Theatre and The Hotel in Amsterdam at the Donmar Warehouse.
In a Forest Dark and Deep makes its appearance at the Vaudeville Theatre beginning on Monday 14th March 2011 (with previews from Thursday 3rd March 2011) and running to Saturday 4th June 2011.
