JUDE LAW steps onto the Bar­bican stage on 19 April. He's star­ring in a new stage ver­sion of Luchino Vis­conti’s 1943 Ob­ses­sion, the first Ital­ian Ne­o­re­al­ist film based on the pas­sion­ate crime novel, The Post­man Al­ways Rings Twice by James M. Cain. Law is the tramp, Gino, who em­barks on an ill-fated af­fair with the wife of a res­tau­rant owner whilst plot­ting to kill her hus­band. “I can’t wait to re­turn to the Bar­bican, where I per­formed 22 years ago with the RSC,” says Law.

Ob­ses­sion is on from 19 April to 20 May 2017 at the Bar­bican Theatre, Silk Street, Lon­don EC2Y 8DS, 020 7638 8891. » bar­bican.org.uk
