Anne-Marie Duff to make theatre return
Anne-Marie Duff is to make her return to the stage next year by taking a role in the play Cause Celebre.
The star had taken a break from the theatre after falling pregnant with her first child last year, but is now poised to return, playing Alma in the Terence Rattigan-penned production.
Telling the story of a woman in 1930s England who, alongside her teenage lover, is charged with the murder of her husband, the play sees the reversal of gender roles as the woman is portrayed as the sexual predator.
Kate Pakenham, producer at the Old Vic, where the play is being staged, told the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye: "It's a sensational play about English attitudes and pitches sexual freedom against the stifling morality of 1930s England."
The play opens on March 17th 2011 and will run until June 11th.
Other productions set to be staged at the venue include A Flea in Her Ear and Cart Macabre.
