Blanchett treads boards in London
Cate Blanchett will appear in a new play by Martin Crimp at the National Theatre next year.
The Hollywood star, above, will perform in London opposite Stephen Dillane in When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other, 12 variations on Samuel Richardson’s Pamela.
Using Richardson’s novel as provocation, the play will explore the messy and often violent nature of desire and the fluid roles men and women play.
Blanchett makes her National Theatre debut.
